    Re: pics of your fwd

    What size wheels are those and did you have to do any mods to the car to get them to fit properly? I have an 05 and looking to put some wheels on it but dont want to go to big and those look good on your ride. also what percent tint is that?

    I'm in MA, and this is the first real snow we've had, and I've been rocking my snow tires unnecessarily since November. With the snow tires, and judging by only about 20 miles of driving in the snow with this car so far, it seems like it'll do great. I haven't had a chance to drive it in really heavy snow on untreated roads, or on the highway in the snow, but it was very competent around town yesterday. Traction control seems to work great and it'll pull away no sweat. I did notice the mass when trying to stop on packed snow, and I am very mindful of the mass when turning since inertia will likely try to make that boat continue on in a straight line, lol. As long as you remember that you are driving a 4,000 lb boat that doesn't like to change direction or speed quickly, it should be very safe in the snow, especially going in a straight line where all that inertia will make it very stable and safe on slick surfaces.

    Yep well I rather drive a 4000lb boat in the snow than a 2000lb Miata. lol.

    The lighter the car the less traction you'll have in the snow.

    Well, not necessarily. A light car with good weight distribution and the right tires can be a lot of fun in the snow, and certainly stops and changes directions a lot better than a 4,000 pound bomber. An ex-gf of mine had a miata on snow tires and it was a blast in the snow...it certainly did better doughnuts and tail slides than my FWD Caddy. I'd certainly rather be in the Caddy driving on the highway in a blizzard, however.

    Re: pics of your fwd

    Lol well of course it turns better. But the point is you want to stay planted on the ground not sliding away hitting other objects on the road. If your looking for fun then yea the Miata will be a lot more fun. But if your actually trying to get someplace important then it's a different story.

    I also hate it when people think that they have 4wd they are invisible and completely immune to snow and ice conditions. I had a few close calls over the past couple days due to this theory of thinking. The tires and driving characteristics is the deciding factor in snow I think. The FWD Cadillac's are actually pretty decent snow vehicles depending on the circumstances. I've never had any problems in the snow with my 90.

    Do you notice any difference between your 2001 DTS and 2000 DeVille? Difference in driving or experience? Comfort?

    I love it! I've seen very few FWD Fleetwoods especially on here. It's always nice to see them posted on here. Pick up a nice set of whitewall tires and you'll be set!
