I was just wondering how many R owners on this forum are braving winter with their Pirelli P Zero's? I live in Kansas City and there are usually only a few heavy snows per year, but several light snow/ice/slush situations. Also, massive potholes open up during the first few months of the year. I am trying to buy snow tires and steelies, but I was curious as to how many of you will be braving mild winters with your stock Volans and Pirellis?<P>

I'm in Oregon, so i'm leaving my Titans on with their Proxes FZ4 Tires, i know if it snows at all, i won't drive, and they don't salt the roads here, so i'm pretty much good to go.<BR>David<BR>95 850 T-5R Sedan

You would have to be crazy to drive on those! And a few holes in the road will bend the rims. The replacement cost of one rim and tire would more than pay for a set of steels and snows or in your case with limited snow even steels and a good set of all season tires. It would give your ABS/TRACS system a very good workout!

Duncan,<P>I'm over here in St. Louis, and I've been using the P-zeros on 17" Titans for my 850, but I swap back to the 16" swept-spoke's with snow-tires for the winter. I've found that the P-zeros begin to lose grip just from the cold weather, as the rubber isn't as flexible. I wouldn't even try and drive with them in snow!<P><P>
