: : Do you have any comment on how all-season 225/45-17s would be on light snow, slush, and maybe a little ice? I know DSC is only as good as the traction the tires provide, but since I live in california and go skiing about once a month, maybe twice, snow tires aren't at all viable. Any comments and what tires you'd recommend? From what I understand, the only choice in that size is the Pirelly 7000 SS, but does the Dunlop 5000 come in that size? Any info would be appreciated!

: The Pirellis are the only one offered in that size as an all season tire, and the all season use is minimal. If you are doing a lot of snow/slush/ice driving, do yourself the favor & get a specialized winter tire. They would be okay for the occasional 3 or 4 days a year type snowfall, but otherwise you really need a winter tire, ASC/DSC or not.

: Hope this helps. Feel free to callme to discuss your situation further.

: Thanks!
