Yeah but compared to a dedicated snow tire, or even an all terrain, there is no comparison.

Yeah I know that, I know nothing compares to a tire that isn't studded, but there are some tires that are worse than others no?

already warned him in another thread...


01-05 PA kit comes with 5/16 or 3/8 OD vent tube extention. Marie's '08 vent tube was only 1/4"...trip to the home depot for some hose barbs and short chunk of hose make it all perfect. The two different sized main fuel hoses supplied in the 01-05 PA kit worked fine in her '08.
