Don't drive in the snow much, do you? Really, and I mean REALLY, they are that bad. No, it's not my imagination. Please...Really!! I mean REALLY! You have that much traction issues with the Firehawks! Man, granted these are not the best choice I wouldve picked for these cars, but I cant imagine you having that much traction issues. I have zero traction issues with the same tires you have and I drive in many conditions.
