It isn't much, but the snow will be falling here in Seattle off and on for the next few days. Time to play in the Subaru.

The stable (except for the red Audi). This is as much snow as you need to shut down Seattle. Not much by the standards of where I grew up (Michigan), but there are no plow trucks here, and we have huge hills and real mountains.

Snow plows are only good for plowing me in and waking me up. I say if it's under 6" they should just let it be.







And $^@# salt!

Yeah, I'm not driving either BMW for a while until all the salt used during this storm has been washed away by rain.

I've always wanted a set of LTW5's.

What wheel width and tire size are you running?

245 / 40/17 all around 17x9 no spacers (on billy / h&r combo) - the thing just clears the struts and fenders

LTW5 should be - functionality > dopeboistretchfenderrape.

Style 5's and the like are a different story.

I said he go go wider rims meaning wider tires and more traction?


And with this much camber it would make sense to go wider if you could...

They only make the 17's up to 9" anyways.

I know you can space them out and fit 255's, but unless it's a dedicated track rat I don't think it's worth the hassle.

Just my two pennies.
