    Do you think you can get a labrador in the trunk of one of those?

    How much does the increased circumference affect the performance/speedo reading?

    The tires are about 34lbs each, so that is the biggest factor. My all seasons ran about 5mph fast at 60 and these are about dead on with the signs that display your speed. Only one full tank on the new tires but looks like I lost a few mpg. Handling down the paved parts of the mountain I live on is the same when I push it, but night and day in the gravel and mud sections. Would of gone with the general grabber at2s as a lighter and cheaper version, but they are not snow rated in this size. Wrangler Duratracs are my preferred mixed use tire but the smallest size was .8" too tall.

    Maybe I can sneak SCS's Mini wagon out there. Just went out today to test out the set of snows. Much betterer!:thumb

    I use a ford focus hatchback for dog duty, and one of mine is a 130lb German Shepard. Of course it can.

    My neighbor across the street has one of those, but in white. Last week, his kids thought they'd help dad out after the snowstorm, and cleaned his car off.

    With a snow shovel.

    I learned to drive one of those. Great car. Sure, it only had about 110 mouse power, but it got everything done--eventually. Snow and ice? BAH!

    Neighbor (RIP) in McCall had one.

    He refused to plow his drive but instead relied on Toyota snow compaction/removal. Always knew when we had over 6" 'cause you could hear David doing the 30mph rally down his 1/3 mile private road. :rofl

    Solid ride and he beat the piss outta it.

    The only reason I'm looking forward to snow this year is so I can see what this car is capable of. Bring it on!

    Sorry for the scanned pic, but this is still my favorite shot. '94 940T. She's still going strong.
