How about a temporary sticky to warn new owners...

...that their performance tires don't work in the winter?

Just a thought. I know I've been caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, and it has absolutely sucked...

any/all summer tire(s) will perform horribly in the snow.

we might as well put a sticky warning for owners not to grab the exhaust manifold or pee in the gas tank


common sense

Garage List
LOl as ward points out we have limited sticky space and we even though its a very good point that everyone on this forum tries to hammer into all our fellow members, we simply can't devote a sticky to every safety topic. As always with any car especially rear wheel drive cars winter tires are a must, not only for safety but it just makes the car so ultimatly driveable and rewarding in the snow...

don't forget the classics like don't eat yellow snow, don't iron your shirt while you're wearing it, and don't stick your hand under the lawn mower while it's running.....
