Still truckin

Well we've had a few snows here and there in Indy and these things amaze me EVERY time.  I just can not get over how well these tires stop on slick surfaces.  Hit brakes, then accelerate back to the stop sign/light because you stopped way shorter than you thought you would.   Everyone who has been in the car flips out at that.  With every other snow tyre I've used I got what is known as the stereotypical Subaru ABS situation where you get major feedback from the ABS system as it tries to stop you.  I think I've engaged ABS once this season and that was in a parking lot trying to engage ABS.   Every car I own will ride on these tyres in the winter.
