Howdy, just found this forum after returning home with our...er, the wifes Compass. She wanted me to drive it as we live at the other end of a heavily traveled, winding and under construction Wildcat Canyon Rd. I drive a 2006 Nissan Titan and I get used to macho, lifted F-250s in the rear view mirror situations, where I pull over at the only legally passable stretch. Today when I hit the real hair pin stuff the pedal-to-the-metal crowd just faded away...unless one off em is still back there up against a boulder. I'm gonna crawl under this thing tommorrow and see how the steering and suspension is put together...that is if I can hide it from the wife before she leaves. Yes it does have Firestones on it but I'll just run some tread off it and replace em.
By the way, what's a snow tire?
