Just finished installing black steels and graspics on my xi wagon. The car did fine even with the crappy no-season tires, but I'm looking forward to passing the damn snow plows that make the road more slippery while passing out rust candy. I think this may actually do better in the snow than my Toyo MRS with snows, although not as fun. Having the engine over the rear drive wheels was great, you couldn't steer, but that's what the gas pedal was for! Ah, I love this time of the year, when I can drift without the physical stresses.
