Ready for winter?

Putting some snow tires on my MINT SH rims... ...Since i have a set of 5zigens waiting for spring. (Don't want to let the car see snow but it's my only source of transportation)

Anyways, what snow tires are you using this winter? I'm thinking blizzaks?

Re: Ready for winter?

I've gotta get some snow tires for my SI rims. I don't really plan on driving in the snow though. I'll just sit at home till they plow the roads.

Re: Ready for winter?

depends on where you live, I live at 10,000 ft elevation in the rockies were the snow can bury a lude in a single storm. blizzaks are nice cause of they're soft campound but get eaten up on clean blacktop. for heavy duty snow I use full studed tires all around.

Re: Ready for winter?

haha yea Im saying Im not dropping 500 benjamins to get a little more grip. The car is just too light and has so much of a tendency to just go fishtailing like nobody's business. Once it starts icing and snowing up here in the mountains of Western North Carolina, Im gunna park my prelude and just bum rides off friends : D

Really? I do believe they are sir. Not to contradict your fine expertise on the subject( no sarcasm there), but I do believe that is an incorrect statement. Why are cars like ours the ones that I see in the railing because they can't hold down the grip because of the weight? Proof of this is when I wrecked my Teg, there were 3 other people who wrecked in that same spot (thankfully not into me tho)...all were small, compact vehicles such as ours. The heavier cars, such as the SUVs and such may have slid an inch, but thats it. Nothing they couldn't control. In comparison to other vehicles on the road, these are small and light little vehicles. If you're comparing them to those that race or something, you're comparing them in the wrong circumstance(cause we're talking about practical use). I am in no way trying to sound condescending, so forgive me if it does, but I do believe our cars our light.

Unless you were being sarcastic...haha in which case it makes my whole mini-rant useless.

Re: Ready for winter?

well, they're not Audi heavy, but they aren't super light either. 5th gens weigh in at like 2700ish lbs. civics weigh in at more than 500lbs less. and those cars you see were most likely in the railing because as soon it it snows/rains/sleets people lose all ability to drive

yea 5th gen's aren't the lightest coupe on the road....but they weren't meant to be barebones, like some civics are. and you have a very good point....it was atlanta drivers we are talking about. But about them being worth it, Im a college kid...trying to save money to modify my lude during summers or 1-2 week breaks. So I feel like getting a whole new set of tires might be a waste of money. But we shall see if the need really arises.

^^That's what I'm sayin!! I went to school in VT for three years and it would snow 15 inches over night in a small storm and no one would think anything of it. Like it was normal. School was never canceled or delayed once. I had my 92 Accord at the time and everyone up there with compact cars (or any car for that matter) was running on studded tires. I went and got my first set in 98 and I have had studded snow tires every winter since then. It was like night and day the difference they make. It felt like it turned my Accord into a 4WD. I never get stuck anywhere with those tires EVER!! The hill my street is on is ridiculously steep goes for about a mile long. People always get stuck and have to leave there cars at the bottom and walk up when it snows. I come home from work and blow right by them! beep beep. I love driving in the snow and putting it sideways!! I go out all the time when we have a real bad storms and the state shuts down the highways, and the only other cars on the road are plow trucks. Ive done 350 mile road trips in blizzards and nor Easters. Its such a rush seeing all the big SUV trucks spun out in a ditch off the side of the highway as you pass and feeling your back end start to break free knowing it can slide out any second.

Now I got my prelude at the end of last winter and it didn't see much snow. I have a set of Blizzaks with about 70% tread left but without studs for it but I've never driven this car when it was real bad out so I don't know how it does in the snow. I'm actually kinda nervous. I'd like to be running on studs this winter but I don't have any money left after just buying my AP1 S2000 wheels/tires.

Same here, schooling and working sucks. I just wanna save up and buy me some turbo parts, but I know i'll regret it when snow hits. Going cheap though, Firestone Winterforces. Hopefully they'll last me a couple winters.

Re: Ready for winter?

A little off topic but I'm very curious. I'm not sure if its a good thing or bad, but i could wheelhop(definitely not a chirp) my car for a very good second shifting from 1st to 2nd at about 7.3/7.4k rpm hard shifting. Is this normal, or is this a sign of my tires wearing out, i have some michellin pilots (205/50/16) with about 45% tread left. Am i just overdoing it? OR is this just power of a lude?

P.s. My first prelude bought not too long ago.

Re: Ready for winter?
