Got an '06 R/T this past spring. Wondering how these RWD puppies handle in the snow & ice. Do any of you fellow North Esterners have any tips? Have you had any major issues with handling or safety? :driving:
Yes...Anguish...this is what I was getting at...how good/bad is traction etc on slippery roads, intersections, etc.?Like Flex says, common sense and a set of snow tires is what you need. Slow down, leave lots of space, assume you can't stop. The biggest difference I found with winter tires was that I was never in danger of getting stuck at a poorly plowed stop sign or similar.
Keep an eye on the for-sale areas here and on other LX forums. Sometimes people trade in their cars or for other reasons have reasonable prices for rims and tires. If you get in at the right time you can get yourself a deal.Shots and Synner...great tips :bigthumb:...will def keep in mind. Hopefully I can afford some snow tires, but I may have to "go it alone" this winter...I didn't put any money aside! :rolleyes2:
And there you have evidence that things like this are highly personal. One person's "reasonable" is another person's "unacceptable". Your mileage will vary.Advice on driving a Charger in the snow? Don't.
Only SLIGHTLY kidding here. My SRT8 SUCKS in the snow even with Blizzaks on.
