17" ZR's in this snow is not fun



Thought it was a good idea last week putting on my summer rims & tires......... until today. Driving in the morning was ok, but after work... well that's another story. First off, had no carmats/carpets in my car. Second, no snow brush. Driving in the streets/highways with the ZR's was a mess. The funny this is that I couldn't even get up my driveway.... and it's only about a 1" grade from bottom to top!!

Oh well... guess I'm parking my car until this snow goes away.

hehe, I was driving on Z tires since february, not fun at all, you can even do donuts on that tires, no grip at all to start to spin.

driveway thing happened to me either, I just left i half way on driveway half on the road.
