how are them nokians, i have the Continental ExtremeContact DWSes on my Mazda 5 and it works fine in snow tho im driving my GLK with Pirelli Scorpion Asimettricos these days, mountain flake symbol all seasons works well enough in the snow and going up cypress but i do wonder if the nokians are more beast like in teh snow.
Nokians are unbelievable, seriously, words cannot describe just how well they've been performing for me. I was close behind a Fit on the weekend in Abby with a few inches of fresh snow on the road, the Fit slipped and got stuck on a very steep hill, I just reversed and then shot right up the hill like it was dry pavement passing the Fit. I used to have Pirelli Asimettricos and they were pretty good, but not great in really tough conditions.
I parked at the top of the hill then pushed the Fit up btw, I'm not going to leave someone stranded.
I can vouch for nokians, use to have michelin snow tires and when i had them i thought they were good... switched over to nokians from all the raving reviews and not one problem with it. ive been turning right on main streets going 30 with no traction issues.
LOL @ translink fail
there's like only 1cm of snow and the extended buses were already getting stuck going up a TINY hill
that's what you get for cheaping out on winter tire..especially on the extended buses with the long ass wheelbase that angle out ..noobs
I don't think they make snow tires for buses. it's called chains. Go drive a duellly pick up truck with just rear wheel drive and see if it does any better. There's too much surface area so it's not grabbing the pavement.
Even if there is winter tires for buses. i bet you it's not going to help. think of towing a trailer and having the trailer part push your car or truck. Do you think it will go anywhere?? same concept just bigger scale.
id enjoy this cause it might be the only one of the season.

The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place... and I donīt care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently, if you let it. You, me or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life. But ain't about how hard you hit... It's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward... how much you can take, and keep moving forward. Thatīs how winning is done. Now, if you know what you worth, go out and get what you worth. - Rocky Balboa
Finally put my snow tires into good use! So many unprepaired drivers driving 20km on two lanes, atleast move to the left/slow lane!
you mean right lane?
I'm so stance my roof rack got a roof rack
