Just wondering if anyone is doing it this year? I would like to give it a try but no longer have my WRX and was thinking about getting some snow tires for my Mini cooper s. I'm just not sure it has enough ground clearence to cope with the roads and would like to hear from some people who have done it. My cooper only has 4.5" to the lower edge of the front air dam and I don't really want to mess it up. I should be able to pick up another .75-1" by going with a taller snow tire. Also what's the prefered tire setup I saw in the rules you can run studded tires and wanted to know if this was the best route.
