Was up in Tahoe this weekend for new years and was very impressed with how the Nero M&S did. By looking at the tread itself I have no idea how it holds so well on snow. I have always run a traditional snow tire in the past and this is my first M&S. The top of Mt. Rose recieved over 5 ft of snow and lake level recieved about a foot of wet and heavy before I headed over the hill back down to Reno. Here are some pics of the pass over Mt. Rose. The ski area was closed due to to much snow. My father, OCLV, was stranded in Mammoth this weekend with over 6ft of snow.<p>Driving down the back side<br><IMG SRC="http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c228/tjdurfee/R_Snow2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>On the top of Mt.

Re: Tahoe snow weekend on Nero (Reno R)

Thanks for posting the review on the Nero's. I have been considering those for my "06 V70R to go from SF Bay Area to Tahoe. How do you like the tires on dry pavement at speed BTW? Nice snow shots up on Mt. Rose.<p>Dan

Re: Tahoe snow weekend on Nero (bayflash)

They are very nice on dry also. The Nero does not hold quite as well as the Rossos but the ride is softer and they do not sidehop hardly at all. Have had no problem taking them well over 100 either.

Yes <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> You win one for the good guys<p>I have been trying to tell people of the value of this tire but I have not<br>had a major snow yet (greater than 4 inches ). I have both Michelin PS A/S and the Nero.<p>So far I am saying the Nero are better overall for cold temperature and that is based on slush and ice (which we had today) but I cannot comment on heavy snow such as yours<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
