Gee, ya think?

I'm damned impressed with the stances you guys have on your cars. Have been lurking on Rally's wheel size and ride height threads for months and I've got an itch for new wheels and coils that I can't see scratching right now with winter on its way.

For those of you who live in hard winter areas and don't garage/hibernate your cars - are you stripping the deep coilover cambery goodness off for the snow and ice or are you sporting the low throughout the year? A guy here in Mass goes back to OEM shocks/struts, wheels, control arms, and rear sway when he swaps to winter rubber.

I drive at the same ride height year round in Rochester. A good set of snow tires has been enough to get me through the winters here so far.

I always dreamed of returning back to OEM for winter but I was far too lazy for it. Every year, despite other plans, I ended up leaving it at the same summer height and just dealing with it.

Your neighbours will thank you for clearing the snow... I'm gonna run at the same height as well, but on Pepperpots with winter tires (Yokohama W.Drive).

Same for me.

Have never had an issue with good winter tires up in Canada and that combo.
