I've had mine on for a few weeks. I put them on around when Sandy came through. I put them on early because I don't drive enough to have to worry about increased wear from higher temperatures.

Wife's Nissan was swapped over last weekend.

My '09 Subaru Outback Sport will be this weekend I hope because the stock Bridgestone's have about 70k on them and are pretty much all used up.

Anyone who says otherwise has either never driven on them or they need to compensate for bad driving by blaming mishaps on their tires.

But as far as the thread, my snows are prob going on Friday afternoon.
I never has an issue in the cold with my 330WHP FWD Open diff tC. I used to like to spin the tire(s) until they heated up. They did suck in actual snow though I usually put snows on today (black friday)

It was good seeing you Wednesday, you coming next week?

I'll be putting my blizzaks on this coming Friday. I ran my proxes 4s all winter last year with zero issues. They're pretty much toast now though.

I've been keeping a close eye on the 10 day weather forecast. My snow tires are approaching the end of their life, and if it stays snow free long enough I may be able to get through this winter without having to buy new ones. I bought new summer tires a few months ago, so they at least have enough tread that I can struggle my way through an emergency situation.

Doing the same thing here, if I see a snow storm coming I will change them over. I also need it warm enough out to wash the OEM wheels and tires before I put them in the cellar.

What, this year? It snowed significantly across parts of southern NE already, parts of CT got a foot. I drove home from work near Mansfield MA on my WRX summer tires, I've never had to do that before.

Snow avoided!

There's a chance of snow tomorrow morning here starting at about 9:00 AM here...late enough to not have to change tires before my 7:30 AM flight, and it should be gone by the time I get back on Thursday.

I put mine on 3wks ago when we had that potential for snow. Glad I did cause I found a broken front end link when I swapped them over.

As a rule mine are on by Thanksgiving unless snow is forecasted before that.

Got some snow this morning, so I put them on today.
I wanted to wait a little longer, but don't want my summer wheels to get all salty.

Put mine on last night....1-3 inches forecasted for today in CT...which means there will be 2-4 inches of salt by the end of the night.

Those are the ones I just got.
Figured I never drive anywhere that isn't plowed, so I don't really have to worry about grip in deep snow.

This whole nonsense about needing a second set of TPMS is silly.
I'll be driving around with the (_!_) light until April.






Yeah, that symbol doesn't look appropriate.
I'm leaving it.

A carefully cut and placed piece of electrical tape makes the ! go away.

Took the coilovers and summer wheels off this weekend. Stock BBS/Blizzaks and stock struts/RCE Blacks are on the car now. So much smoother.

3. 27" off road tires on order... check

Good thing I don't have to drive in the snow anymore
