I have a 97' 850R and love, I can appreciate your snow problem. I recently moved from Houston, Texas, (Zero Snow) to Northwest of Denver, CO (lots of Snow) and was extremlly embarrased when I could not drive up a rather small hill with about 8 inches of snow coverage. I tried and tried while a lady in her little subaru watched in grin. After I gave up she drove up it with Zero effort and probably not in four whel drive either. I was able to follow after shel made way or me. Talk about embarrasing. Anyway, My P-Zeros have neared end and I'm getting 5 new Michellin Pilot SX MXX3 205/50ZR17 Tirerack has a special on them at $120 a tire Discount Tire matched it from their $239.00 list at Discount Tire. I hope thay perorm well enough in the snow to get me by. Next year I'll probably elect for the 15" wheels and snow tires. Another thing that frustrated me about the P-Zeros is the impact bubble problem.
