We've been lacking any significant snow in Buffalo since I picked up Nugget last December... well tonight we got dumped on for a lil bit & I don't leave work til 11pm so pretty much had free reign on plenty of unplowed city streets. It was a blast! Take the traction control off & have some fun! (Obviously not unless you're playing or stuck, just sayin if you haven't already for those picking up their 2013s play around with it off) I love this lil tank & it did damn good with stock Yokohamas on still with around 17k miles on them. It handles deep powder, heavy snow & plowed streets way better than the slush but most any tires do. Next winter I'm gonna go with Conti DWS but for now I'm more than happy.
