I pulled that one off the pole, he musta been going at a pretty good clip to loose it there. It moved on the ice like a champ after I pulled it off the pole. I was actually surprised how well it was on the ice when I was moving it around back at our yard.

Definetly not worth it for Victoria... My experiences a are with -30 temperatures where all seasons turn into plastic wheels with no grip.

Shoveled my driveway on friday, and chipped away all the ice on it (about 1 inch of pure ice). Wanted to take the 300 out for a small drive and finally get it out to a family member's house to start some engine work; my driveway had another plan. Hit black ice, back end slid off my driveway, and into the neighbour's yard. After an hour of fighting with it, got the car back on my driveway...sideways.

Looks like it gets to sit in the driveway for another week.

The K5 is having no troubles, even with just a set of BFG All-Terrains.

BFG All Terrains aren't all that bad of a winter tire, way better than Mud Terrains. I just put some Dunlop Grendtrek SJ5 tires on the Envoy and its a night day difference over the Yoko Geolanders that were on it.

It snowed maybe 6" here, but it's drifting bad. The snow in my driveway is at least a foot deep now but all the vehicles are bare, the driveway was bare yesterday. Time to shovel and salt again. I don't want to think about what the Sookehalla will be like tomorrow

BFG A/T's are one of a few all season tires that have the severe winter weather symbol.

Snowed in good at my place now. F*ing Langford wouldn't know a snow plow if one jumped up and bit it in the face.

Drove home from Sidney last night around 930 and it was pretty ugly. Thankfully everyone that was on the road was driving ok so I had no problems but I could see how it could have gotten ugly if someone who didn't have a clue how to drive might get in trouble
