Hey you don't use SP Sport 8000's in  the winter, DUH...  I have a set of
Blizzaks on my ten spoke rims and it kicks total butt...  I will never use
a ultra high performance tire on the snow, you have to be in some other
state of maind to do something like that....  my sp sport 8000's are worn
in the front, so i may replace all again and get me some Pirelli P7000SS's....
