Quickly - RX-8s aren't known for their snow skills. They reek, in fact. I had a '05 Shinka that got stuck on my drive way. It's as flat as an ironing board. But, with Blizzaks, my newer RX-8 actually passed a Toyota Fourrunner that was STUCK. Of course the Yota driver was probably doing something ridiculous, but here I am...driving along, 5 of wet, thick snow...like it was nothing.
I tell you, there's some voodoo going on with Blizzaks. I'm a believer.
