Yeah, below 40 degrees or snow/ice ditch them for the safety of you and anyone else on the road. Not safe at all to use the F1 summers at all lol.Butt pucker! :shocked:
My last car with summer tires was all-wheel drive ('04 VW R32) and it went great. The ST not so much. I'll get used to it, though. :smile:
I've see a lot of people blow crack, and then come apart too.. LMAO!!yup summer tires are very dangerous below 40. I've seen them blow crack and come apart.
AWD has that effectThe R32 came with Goodyear Eagle F1s. I was working at the time and they worked pretty good, surprisingly. I never had a problem.
Eagle F1 AS A/S (all season) or Eagle F1 AS II's (summer)? The all seasons are typical "no-seasons" which do okay on dry and okay in mild weather. The summers break lose at -2psi boost when it's below 35 degrees FThe R32 came with Goodyear Eagle F1s. I was working at the time and they worked pretty good, surprisingly. I never had a problem.
That car is long gone, so I don't know which one it was exactly. The tires had a deep V pattern. They were the summer performance version, which isn't available now.Eagle F1 AS A/S (all season) or Eagle F1 AS II's (summer)?

Being a Volkswagen I don't blame him, but I respect the close following VW have with their cars. My first car was a MKIV Jetta. Hated it, but loved the looks.Why would you get rid of the R32!!!
The magic AWD that also lets you brake and turn better than any other car too.I'm curious what summer tires you were using with awd that worked in snow. AWD isn't magic, you still need grip.
THIS. Please people, just do it properly. Don't put yourself/your property/other people/other people's property at risk. Is there snow? Put on snow tires - nothing else.Anyone who drives this car on summer tires in actual snow needs to please not. If you can afford an ST with summers, you can get a set of snow tires or all seasons and not be a danger to everyone else on the road.
Oh hell yeah.Had the same problem with mine when it snowed today, but I dared not risk driving outside of my driveway. Of course my brand new snow tires/wheels for it are stacked up in my garage so I'm gonna try to put them on this weekend. Luckily my old beater (Chrysler sebring) has snow tires on so I bombed around town in that hunk of junk!
