I'm just happy I'm still only running 15psi on my tires right now, makes things so much easier for me.

Its -3 so its really icy. The snow that's falling isn't really making it powdery but more hardpacked icy. Usually I make out pretty well in the powder with M+S tires, but this ice is just horrible. It's still pretty safe to drive around 50 on most streets just be very aware and alert .. I hit a few patches of ice randomly in corners and had to correct it pretty quick. People are driving like completely morons on the side streets (inadvertently running stop signs, making wide ass left turns into the opposite side of the street, retarded).

Well at your own discretion. I left my truck in 2nd gear the whole way, as I approached corners/curves I just let off the gas and let the engine brake all 4 wheels down to 30 and go through them, then get back upto 50. Taking left turns is risky business. Never know if people are gonna be able to stop in time or not.

Just want to stress to anyone with snow tires that this is ice we're talking about on the roads. Not just snow. Conditions are very icy out there, and even with snow tires, that doesn't mean you should be driving like an idiot.

Just because you may be able to stop/go/maneuver doesn't mean everyone else around you can.

I don't think the x6 stock tires are meant for the snow.
