Driving my Camaro in New England this Winter just FINE!!

I have been driving my Camaro in the SNOW just GREAT!! I put on the Pirelli Scorpion Ice and Snow tire (the one GM recommends) and they are AWESOME!! I have had NO problems at all.

If anyone is going to put them on you do have to remember how to drive a real wheel drive car in the snow or go learn how to do so but these tires work very well.

GREAT JOB GM!!

My two previous Camaros (86 and 2000) could not go anywhere in the snow!

Tires make the difference on every vehicle. I put Michelin A/T's on my TrailBlazer and I haven't had to use 4wd once, even in deep (6"+) stuff.

Cool too see! It is a great tire!

Snow tires make a HUGE difference on just about any car.

But I think, esp from experience, the right tire makes ALL the difference.. ..

I ended up in very light snow a few times with Z-rated tires on my '00 SS and once with drag radials. It's nuts how much difference tires do make.
