The car is great but the Sottozero's are B**ll***s!
Not happy :-(
I have the Sottozero's on mine and have had no problem, in the Reading area so snow is pretty bad as well.
Especially good under braking but driving 40-50mph on dual carriage way when other cars barely doing 20.
I have 18" 225 45 all round, what's your set up?
