Hope you didn't put the summer shoes on prematurely, Brad! Was that some
blizzard last night or what? It was an adventure driving home from the
Springs late last night.
Nearly got my car stuck in the street right in front of my house this
morning, even with winter tires. Over a foot of heavy snow, not our usual
CO powder. I think they call this stuff "Sierra cement" in CA.
Btw, I use the same tire size combination as you do on my '92.
