    Worst tires ever. Don't even try them in more than slushy conditions. They are dangerous!

    I had the z7 kit on mine too... Miss that whine... Turbo made more power, but that whine was awesome... Nothing like a ported Eaton!

    No traction issues with Michelin X-Ice. But then again I don't have an SUV as a back up vehicle. The Odyssey runs on Bridgestone Blizzaks and they are excellent as well.

    I put Hankook Winter IPikes on mine. They were pricey but well worth it. Up here in ND the snow can really pile up. I have yet to get stuck.
