Post Fog lights in heavy snow

Would fog light provide any benefit over low beams in a heavy snow fall? The reason I ask is because last monday I was driving home in snow and visablity was really low.

PS I know I can't spell

Yes- I believe so. Just don't use your brights!

Well, they are going to product less glare because of their mounting position and because of their beam pattern.

However, I can't turn my stock fogs on independantly from the low beams, can you?

Nope, mine are wired to work only with the low beams. I kind of assumed (hee-hee) that he didn't even have fog lights, otherwise he would've tried them out for himself. So my comment about the high beams was just a generic announcement.

Although, most people that install aftermarket foglights go ahead and connect them to work with the parking lights, so they will work with both low and high beams.

I think Hella Yellowstars www.rallylights.com

might be better if you're driving in inclement weather. less glare.
they run 80 Watts I believe, but that's pushing it for the stock wiring.

I regularly run with just my fogs (Hella FF300's) in heavy snow with my '92 Turbo. Vision is improved (even with clear lenses/bulbs) because of the better beam pattern, less 'snow-flake' illumination
