My fear was that it would suck in the dry but it was not bad this afternoon with sunny and 45F weather. It's nowhere near as responsive or grippy as the summers for sure, but I don't have any of the complaints that :wasteful: has about his Xi3's making him nauseous or whatever.

It's more like going from a razor sharp sports car to something like a regular sporty car. M2C vs M240i type thing. Still pretty fun with the marshmallows on it.

It's lube to seat the beads when it's 20 degrees out and even the snow tires are hard. Mounting tarz can be a PITA when it's warm and total :rage: when it's cold.

I'll clean it up eventually. Maybe. Or :jesus: will do it.
It won't come off on it's own. It's still all over my :ramz: that were put on in September.

I had Xi3s on the volt and thought they were just fine. Definitely soft, but isn’t that the point?

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

I have performance winter tars on my car and the handling characteristics are :impressive: , I don't see why someone needs the epic traction of a marshmallow tire if they even remotely know how to drive in shitty traction conditions. My parents put xi3s on her TL and it's a :dislike: from me.

I probably would have been fine on the Pirelli performance winters but they're old and have mixed reviews. No other options were available here in :jalepenis: 205/50/17 :doe:

Fine for a Volt, but on my STi it completely ruined the car. Driving an STi on Xi3s for close to 6 months out of the year was a total :butwhy: experience, it dramatically neutered the feel on turn-in and the stability mid-corner. I would've been much better off on some PA4s or even some AS3+ all-seasons :doomed:

I had Nokian Hakka flocka flames. No steering feel to be had in 205-65/15 but they tore shit up.

I put the oem mud flaps on the front today, they seem pretty good. Solid feeling and perfect fit. The rears require pulling the wheels off :doe: so I'll do that another day.

When I got the snow tarz, I had the shitty stockers moved to the SSR's. Summer tire storage is sitting out in the back yard, poverty style.

That would be a lot of coffee tables. I've done it before but it only realistically fit 2 tires for my table. Image

I did coffee + end table with my BBS wheels. Threw some white Christmas lights inside of them for some sexy ambiance. None of the :tits: even noticed.

This is back when I had my own place @21 and thought I was hot shit because I had forged BBS wheels. There was probably 100 different sets of :tits: through that door. 0% noticed the :ramz: and maybe 4% noticed me.

I also lived alone with a :225: coffee table in my early 20s... can confirm, the table never got me laid. Now I have perma- :tits: and the days of :225: coffee table are long gone :sad:

Aldi is great when times are tough. Scrap metal is only $.25. you need a :truk: to really take advantage of that though.
