Winter Mode: ON

I was on vacation last week and surely enough, as we get back, it is snowing cats and dogs and my car is sitting on near bald summers...

There was atleast and 1-2 inches on the ground already this morning when I headed to get my winters thrown on.
Before: 275/35/18s Summers all around


After: 245/45/17 Bridgestone Blizzaks all around


Let it snow let it snow let it snow...

Post your winter Mode Pics.

Guys, dont worry about salt and rust. Our cars are old and we are not the 1st owners, so you THEORETICALLY cant do anything to prevent rust. You can prevent underbody rust, but not rust on the panels.

My car in summer mode:

My car in winter mode:

Beautifully rusted 17" steelies.

Why do you need winters to store a car?

If he had winters already might as well store it on them instead of his summers.

I stored my e30 on winters before I finally sold it.

I guess that makes sense. I was thinking more like he bought a specific set to store the car on.

I am going to wash my car today if I feel any better. been sick like a dog. It is currently white.
