Just put the GS D3s away and put on a set of Avon A/S. We got about 4" of snow this morning and I took the V out to play. I was VERY pleased with the way they performed. If I use my wife's Explorer with 4WD as a 5.0, the Avons were 3.5. Only had problem on icy hills and then the traction would kick in and I was okay. FYI, none of our roads were plowed around here. the GS D3s are no better than a 1.0 in snow. I got the Avons from Tirerack last week. The cost was $627 including UPS delivery. I relied heavilly on the reviews on the Tirerack web site. I know some forum members have said Avon A/S tires get loud after 20K miles or so, but at this price I'm not worried.propain said:I dont know if anyone remembers my review of the CTS V in the snow last winter but it wasnt pretty.
I would like to get some snow tires a minimal cost (Not changing the rims out)
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Nice sleds Rick. There are days I miss that. Few, but some. The new Yamaha would be a hoot. I've riden many a sled from Enticers and Exciters to the Vmax series. But the new Apex GT with 150HP. That would literally scare the crap out of me.StealthV said:Wintersports are very good; used them last winter and just put them back on the V last weekend.
Almost makes the V into a
