3-4 inches of the white stuff, couldn't find anything in the yard that'd stop me!

These tires grip very well, even later on when it was warming up and the snow was packing under the tires.

BTW, my yard makes a great proving ground- lots of steep hills, they just don't go on for very long. Long enough to stop and restart on the grade, though!

The tires worked great in a big open unplowed lot, too. No 4x4's came in for a quick drag race, though.

3-4 inches wouldnt stop my old FWD 89 GL on all seasons!!! you need much more than that to really test it out!! :Flame:

Had to go out early Sunday after we got snowed on Saturday night - had a 3+ ft drift right in front of the garage door, and much drifting all the way down the driveway -average depth of 10-12 inches (live in farm country - nothing to stop it) The 90 Legacy LS wagon plowed thru the big drift @ the door and all the way out to the road (about 100ft with a curve) with no problems on Cooper all seasons...:clap: I love my Subaru!!

No camera, no one to take pics anyway!

Yeah, its only 3 inches so far, well 4.5-6 this morning, did a lap around the house, no sweat. I do indeed need more snow to truly test the limits.

Took a big leap of faith, took the subie down into 'the bowl', a flat, low area in my yard that has a moderate hill exit, and steeper hills.

Moving around on the flat in about 6" was easy, I went to leave on the moderate hill and realized there were snow drifts that way- thought I was boned when the snow started coming over the hood at walking speed (its windy in my neck of the woods, I get some sweet drifts), I did have to back-and-attack a few times but I got right through.

Yeah!
