Great info... Good to know when I'm ready to replace my tires.... in the meantime since I don't get to see snow that often... (SoCal), I guess the ratings are ok.

i have the pirelli pzero nero.. living in michigan, we get the same weather you do.. they were fine on sub-zero cold.. flat spotted but warm them up, smooth.. just like they do when it's hot outside. good on slush and snow up to about 3 inches. ice wasn't too bad, but abs came on if i got into the brakes heavily, which is to be expected. Got me through snow storms was impressed. for the winter it wasn't too bad. anything over 3 or so inches i would recommend real snow tires though.Originally posted by Turbocharged@Aug 17 2005, 11:26 PM
sorry to bring this post back. i'm just wondering what other thoughts are after a year of using these tires in wet and snow weather. i'm living in chicago, il so i'm worry the performance of these tires in the snow weather.
i agree with zoltiz.. don't roll on the stock junk tires, order something better now and slap the new stuff on when you get your car. Don't need another "oh i lost my tc because of the rain.. etc" story. The RE92's are a lawsuit waiting to happen. they are only good enough to roll your car off the truck!Originally posted by zoltiz@Aug 18 2005, 12:07 AM
Order new tires now. When you get your car, put new tires on, and sell the ones that tC comes with on eBay. Good chance you won't lose any $$$, but will definitely gain a whole lot of safety.
There are couple of threads here with people discussing rubber. Look them up.
