winter tires have a softer rubber then summer tires, so that you have better traction. but dont use them too much in summer :-? :D

I use the same tires... too poor to own 2 sets of wheels. My stock tires are bald and don't really want to replace. And my old rims 2 of them have the metal comin threw them. And if we get alot of snow, the drift bumper will take away some of that. :D

Dude, you are missing out, get yourself a winter beater... Nothing can stop my Sidekick, not even ditches (or stop signs for that matter.) LMAO

4X4 plus 31's in the corners = badass winter beater!

As for being 6 years old, you should really buy new tires sunstealth. I just watched on tv this week about tire quality over a few years old.

Winter tires? The best are All Season Tires, preferably a deep good tread will do. Stay away from studs, they're no good.

I saw that news clip to. The government thinks that the tire quality after 6 years is poor and that the tires should be replaced. But you know the government, it maybe a scam just to sell more tires... who knows.

The cavy has been rotting in my driveway $530 a month in insurance is INSANE. (2 tickets, 0 accidents) The Sidekick is $300 a year, cause it is kinda my dads...

I actually might trade the cavy in for a 1999 MXZ 670 HO... stingers, 144 studs, 3200 kl's.

I am sick and tired of that car... too much on isurance, not worth it... for 530 a month, I could make payment on a BMW 5 series and in 5 years have a brand new Beemer for fucks sake!

What a waste!

I am gonna put a sign in the windshield of that car soon..."Free, OBO"

Should'n be too hard to find... have a look at local buy, sell, trade books... I bet there are some ready to go in there for cheap... Junkyards are also a good place to look, but they like to fuck people over.
