In Reply to: These cars suck in the snow! posted by rick on December 11, 2000 at 19:31:54:

RWD cars are pretty much useless without snow tires. A set of 15" Blizzak WS 15s have carried me through 2 winters and have enough tread for this one. They came with the car and the PO had put another winter on them before I bought it. With the Blizzaks the car is nearly invincible on snow or ice. The only down side is the squirmy handling on dry roads.


Hi everyone,
I live 45min west of Chicago... So far I think we're at a foot of snow. Well, here's the deal, my wife drives our E34, and decided she could make it to work this morning. She did. By 4pm, I went to trade her cars, I have a Dodge Caravan as co. car, so we traded.
As additional background, the car has 15" all-seasons on it for the winter, brand new Dunlops. The 17s are stored. Anyway, trying to take off from a stop, rear-end kicks out, trying to stop... not as bad, but still tough.
Now I know if I had dedicated snows like Blizzaks or something I'd probably be a little better off, but still, this car is dangerous.
Anyone else slippin & slidin?
Just wanted to share my misery with someone.
Thats all for now.
