RE: Descending Icy Hills

I live in Incline Village, Nevada (Lake Tahoe) and I have a set of
studded snow tires for all four corners on my '87 5KCSQ.  These tires
are awesome when there is ice, it feels like the car is on rail-road
tracks!  I would strongly recommend a set of studded snows for anyone
who lives in area where snow or ice are encountered.  I guarantee it
will be an investment you be glad you made!
