..and the Blizzak's reign supreme!

Small note before I tell this story: I live in Connecticut on a paved driveway that is 900+ feet long, goes uphill and is at an almost 25 percent grade at its steepest point.

Today the snow didn't come. The ice did. We got hit with some freezing rain just before I got home.

About 10 minutes ago, I looked outside and said to myself "Okay, let's see if these tires live up to their name." Bear in mind there is a layer of ice on the driveway. Also bear in mind that steep crest near the top.

I back up, turn around and start off - then I purposely give the car gas and mash the brakes. Car stops. Completely. Without hesitation, on the crest. WOW.

I go on down the driveway and purposely mash the brakes a few more times. The car stopped on a dime every time. It was as if there was LIGHT SAND under me, not ICE.

I get to the bottom, turn the car around and go right back up. No problems whatsoever. Unbelievable. Totally un-frickin-believable(!!!!!)

My Blizzak's are worth every single penny I paid for them. Ice don't mean a thing to these slicks and neither does snow when it comes. I know now that even when going DOWNHILL on ice, the car will stop, not "maybe" stop, it will stop.

Awesome.
