Them wonderful snows

I have been fortunate enough to have owned many good snow cars through the 
years(see below) so I have never sprung for new snow tires.  Well you can see 
where this is going.  After deciding Yokohama AVS's are NOT snow tires I went 
out a spent 650 bucks for new snow tires and a set of all seasons (Michelin) 
for the Subi. 
So I went skiing so I could test out my new snows :-).  WOW WHAT AN ANIMAL.  
That car flat out goes with snows on it.  I didn't really push it that hard 
because it was my first time but I did play in the parking lot.  The oversteer 
is gone and it wasn't even fun to play in the parking lot anymore.  The thing 
stuck so well that I had to use the e-brake to do a 360.  So those of you who 
were like me, bite the bullet and GET SNOW TIRES.
