I can tell you from my experience that I used Blizzacks on a couple of my cars in Colorado winters and they worked great. I hope you have good luck with the tires on the SRT8 monster, as the Pirelli's have as good of, or even better, reviews of winter traction versus the Blizzacks.

They should be spectacular like Blizzak II and Michelin Arctic Alpin. We are getting 4-6" tonight, started about an hour ago, I am on GY comfortreads which are very well rated in the snow, I'll post. The proof is in the pudding not in the recipe.

I had a similar experience with Blizzaks 10 years ago on my 300E, without all the artsy fartsy traction aids it drove like an AWD.

So far so good on the GY CT, wifey drove it up the big hill, TCS kicked in, minor fishtailing but it motored up well. The FWD Odyssey I was driving also had the TCS active in one section, no sliding though. I'll post tomorrow after going in 6".

Uh, some guys plan things just a little TOO carefully...

Glad you like the tires. Have the same ones on our MSRT8. Totally agree with your review. If you use a little common sense, these cars can go anywhere in the winter.

Coming soon: Pirelli 255/45R20 snow/ice tires came in at 11:30 this morning. Had them mounted by 1:15. Snow started by 1:30.

Current visibility: 1 block.
Drive home: 15 miles.

Review: when I get home.

The 255/45R20 does fit on the front with no clearance issues.
how much, and from where?

The GY CT continues to impress in light snow, 3" total, slush and packed ice. The real test comes with the deeper stuff and the big hill. I turned off the esp and and could easily break traction. With esp on, I had to be really stupid with the throttle to break traction.

Have you spent any time on big hills in snow yet. How did the car perform with the new tires?
