There seem to be many varying opinions on this subject from various ST forums. Fiesta ST Supplement guide says to use 195/45 R16 for chain clearance (TR has 2 snow tires in stock for this size), but I won't be using chains. TireRack recommends 205/45 for a 16" size (won't the speedo be off for one of those?) »
I shot this back in March, during what we thought would be the last snow of this winter. the objective was to make a video for one of my California buddies who has never driven in snow before to demonstrate how easy it is to drift literally everywhere at hilariously slow speeds. »
And not go put some summer tires on the Honda. See, it was a good 65 degrees over the whole weekend, I actually was sweating a little bit. However, around 9 am this morning it starts snowing, there's already a good inch or so of snow on the ground. »
This is an audi, and from what you cannot tell from the picture, is that it is actually parked about 2 feet above the actual ground. Well done sir. Well done. What's the best parking job you've seen this winter? »
Is there any car in the universe that is as versatile as Porsche's venerable 911? I think not. Check out this snowy drift battle between these yellow bananas. Do you need 4-wheel drive or is 2 just right? Who cares! DRIFT! »
Was back home for a long weekend in da upper peninsula of michigan. I didn't see any test or manufacturer vehicles this time, avoided trolling the hotel parking lots looking for manufacturer plates.
Forgot to take a picture of the continental tire testing facility but caught a picture of this place »
