Thought I'd try to see if the car will spin all four and sure enough (thanks to adjusting the clutch) I could do a sustained burnout for 20 to 30 ft in 1st gear. It was quite fun, I'll see if I can get one on video if it keeps raining...

They are also great for randomly driving sideways on snow... without having to turn the wheel :laugh: Man, those tires are so terrible in the snow, AWD helps though.

On a more serious note, I was gonna attempt a few donuts but since have put on a set of Dunlop Winter Sport M3s so I dunno how easy it will be... that is if it snows again.

Oh ya, I may be selling my stock Potenzas with 2463 miles on them... any idea what I should ask for them on ebay? Haha.. Getting RX8 rims and some Falken Azenis this spring.

I made $100 off of mine on eBay and mine were near bald and only three good tires. Probably *could* have gotten more but I was impatient. Im sure if you have a decent amount of tread left you could get $300-400 (half the price of new ones).

I have those tires and trust me, you can still do donuts. Just have to have enough snow. Empty parking lot + 4 inches of fresh snow says so :D
