    holy FUCK

    its like spraying tire shine on your tread, going out on a frozen lake, and trying to do perfect figure 8's




    I had to drag....thats right, drag, my car up my street (long) and in my driveway with the friggin Excursion.



    My definition of "drag": I threw a J-hook on each front lower control arm, pulled the e-brake, and hooked it up to the tow-hitch of my truck.


    I had no one around to steer/ect and I wasn't about to leave it unattended in the ghetto Brooks parking lot at the bottom of my street...I was worried enough RUNNING to my house to grab the truck/chains.

    My Mother is in Rhode Island right now, with my Civic with the HZ all seasons. And no shovel.

    Argh.

    On a lighter note, the broodwagon got a workout this week.

    Nittos never did me wrong...I had NT's (205/40/16) on my old CRX for 2 years, never even got a bubble and I left the things on year round.



    The CL w/Michelin's = mad bubbles

    You live in New England, get some goddamned tires. I spent my whole life in Florida, and even I know that I need snow tires.

    I'm pissed we didn't get ANY snow!

    I HAD snow tires on...I took them off Wednesday because they said we were only going to get an inch or two and Providence is usually really good about plowing/sanding.

    Man i know how you feel, i've been in michigan since january, with azenis on my car.
    If it snows lightly, or ices at all, im stuck where ever i am until it melts.
    I don't have snow tires, but i did manage to crack all the paint off from my front bumper, and crash my car once into a curb with minimal damage to my splash guards.
    All in all, snow is stupid, ice is stupid, and michigan is stupid.
    Goin back to phx on the 21st. :p
