When I take off my summers and switch to the all seasons for winter (winters are not too bad here either) it amazes how much differently the car handles even when not being pushed hard. The car practically feels like it is wallowing around at moderate speeds in corners.

I am in Chicago.

I am about to take delivery of a new Focus ST with the all season tire options.

I very much DO NOT want the all seasons. How many miles are on your Goodyear summer tires?

1366 miles no launches or burnouts, just highway driving.

You have machined wheels or snow flakes? I have machined.

Ah nuts, the car I'm supposed to be getting has flakes. What I'm probably going to end up doing is tossing my winter wheels on the new car, get some summer rubber for the flakes and then probably toss the all seasons on craigslist.


Is Ford finally replacing your car?!
Until I sign the paperwork and drive the new car off the dealership lot, I refuse to say yes.

It's been the most ridiculous, long, screwed up road to this replacement vehicle and nothing at this point would surprise me.

But yeah, it's supposed to happen soon. My dealership has the car waiting and everything. Regardless of what ends up happening, I'll update the misfire thread once this is all over. It's seriously ridiculous.

I'll buy them off you if the price is right :D and if you'd be willing to meet up half way, Chicago is a 5 hour drive from where I live south of St. Louis.

I know one thing.... I wish I had all seasons! It was 21 deg. when I hit the road this morning and these Eagle's don't get much traction at all when it's cold, spin spin spin, must be careful. Must get all seasons when I need tires next. That is all.

My ST came with the Eagle F1's and I switched to the P-Zeros, I am regularly getting sub freezing temps in the morning out here, and the F1s did not like that.

I live in snow country, 120+ inches a year on average. And I am glad I got summer only. Bought some 17 inch steels and winter tires and love them. Though the tires try to spin like crazy due to the torque.
