Well I was waiting to see how the SRT would perform in the snow and well its sucks. Might be a combo of the tires Nitto 420's and the power. All I did was back out of my driveway (which is flat) to switch cars around and the SRT had trouble. When I got it out I drove down the street (starting in 2nd gear) and it had NO traction and this was maybe 3-4" of snow. Quickly put it back in driveway. Blizzak DM-v1 might look nice now. I'll be using the Durango or Liberty for the winter :D

I don't think the Nittos have the tread design for snow? Also, turn traction control off in deeper snow to gain traction. Owners guide says that. It engages the front wheels sooner.

Last year I pulled my Jeep out of the driveway into a mostly plowed street to move cars and I had to re-dig it out twenty minutes later. Definitely not the best car in the snow.

Damn KZ i had been thinking about getting some Toyo Proxes for all season but u making me think twice about those Atturos! Since we both live in Chicago and my job requires me to sometimes be out when the snowfalls come down...so u had NO slippage at all during this Fridays snowfall?

On a side note, drove the WK2 today in 4 inches of fresh snow. Put it in "snow" mode and had no problems at all with the stock pirelli tires.

Sounds good bro...as long as it stays on road and not all over the place and u have good traction at stops and takeoffs that's str8! Where u stay by bro so maybe one day we can meet and I can check them out soon and maybe order me some for same price as u...

So do you guys drive with traction control off or use it only to get going then turn it back on?
