So here's a thread To post all of you're snowy beasts pics from this winter (or past)! Show the utilitarian side of our German muscle:M5thumbs:

I'm in my 3rd winter with my beast, and she loves it. Running Blizzak LM60's on OEM front rims all around, the car is not only very dependable, but an absolute blast! It's funny seeing the confused looks from the German muscle roar through the snow in a sea of 4x4 trucks, Thule ski box and all :haha:

Here's some of the pics I've got so far.

Sorry for the poor quality photos but hear are a few pictures of my beast in the snow.

BTW, a little tip...

if you ever get stuck in the snow and have no one to help push you out, use your rubber mats for traction! You can place them under the stuck tire(s) to give them some traction. It's funny how they sometimes iare sent flying depending on whether you are reversing or trying to go forward. This trick has helped me when I've gotten stuck with not a soul in sight to help.

Cheers,

Scott

Any of you guys running 17" winter tires/rims? If so, how's the drive and the look of smaller rims?
sor118 + tiauguinho are on bmw style 66 17" wheels
&
inverno + tj hunter seem to be on borbet 17" wheels

i have rial salernos w/ blizzaks

at first17" looks tiny, but they end up working ok
- it's not some crazy small wheel
- if you run factory size 235/45/17 the wheels will look skinnier on the rear though
- 245/40/17 next time
