when it drops below 40 or so the 215 Blizzaks will go on, mounted on Motegi Racing Mr118's. Best traction I've ever witnessed on slick ice. The car currently sits with a one finger gap but that may change as winter comes and any big snows and I will crank her up again. 2006 so I dont have to worry about rust other then the brake calipers which have a tendency to rust and a good cleaning with brake cleaner keeps those preserved. Probably will relube the wheel bearings after the winter as they are starting to portray some symptoms of wear and the heavy salting they do will need to be cleaned out. Thats all that I can think of now for the winter.
Also about the farmer's almanac they were predicting pretty good snow 6-10 inches a few times last year so that is pretty much invalidated in my books. haha
