      Not sure what you mean by wobble wheels. I've debated cleaning the snow out, but it looks cool...

      He means the snow almost always unbalances the wheel - you could have gotten lucky though

      Drove down from the mountain a few years back, my Columbas got stuffed like that. Hit warmer wather, snow melted somewhat, and then froze again. Like having two kilo balancing weights on each wheel

      Ah, now I get it. I'm not used to this thing called snow.

      No balance issues so far.

      I got one picture from today's shenanigans. Tomorrow I'm gonna go out for a shoot in the snow. Also drove my Grandfathers 2015.5 XC70 T6. The Haldex is amazing and it was fun doing awd donuts.

      When you drive for extended periods in the snow I've found that crud builds up on the inside of the rims and in the wells that goes through a melt-Refreeze cycle and can unbalance your wheels horribly.

      Boo. I left the car running for quite a while this morning while fetching speakers in hopes that the heat of the engine would melt some of it. No such luck. This is the first time I've really been out playing in the snow like this

      In Michigan, you get cited for chains if they touch pavement. We don't do many chains here for that reason.

      Oddly, they allow trucks to be 2x the federal limit on Michigan roads. That's 160,000 lbs vs 80,000 lbs.

      The Haldex wasn't bad at all and it loved to drift out on corners. It's really controllable as well.

      Jealous of everyone who got some fresh snow today. Us inland New Yorkers got none. Drove further and deeper into the Catskill Mountains than ever before today in search of some left over white stuff. Ended up out near Andes, NY, a tiny town in the middle of nowhere. With the exception of a few main state routes, all the secondary roads were a beautiful red dirt.



      I took off down one and just kept turning onto new ones that I liked the look or the name of. They were super windy and narrow and really damn fun.



      Before I knew it I was completely lost. With no cell service or GPS I just kept turning right at the next road for a while until I found my way back to some semblance of civilization. When I resurfaced on the GPS I was well over 2 hrs from home! Good times...

      Swedish Metal in The Snow



      Parked next to this guy. I'm thinking I'm about as competent in snow, and I'm not driving around in sub-zero temperatures with a non-sealing cloth top!

      Not trying to start jeep hate mail. I'm just giggling at how cold the vehicle must be in the wind we are getting right now. There are probably drifts inside the truck.

      I now know all about this wobble you guys are talking about. I can't go above 35 mph without serious vibrations.

      JK tops seal well.

      If it has lockers you are no match for a true transfer case and sold axles.
      Mine has lockers, I go places Volvo can't

      Volvo does it faster and way more comfortably though. That's for sure. Old Cherokee that's been beaten on the trail is getting some squeaks and rattles.

      My very, very, very dirty girl. Over a foot of unplowed snow and the ol' girl never skipped a beat. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Volvo really made one hell of a car---01 with nearly 240K. And yes, before anyone asks, it still has its original transmission.

      Hmmmmmm....after swinging a golf club yesterday morning in a pair of shorts, I then spent the afternoon hand washing and detailed my XC. Admittedly, I was thinking how fortunate I was that I was NOT on the east coast this weekend. So far, locally the snow is staying on the mountains, which I am quite happy with. Glad to hear the XC's are living up to their potential.

      ^^^^ Judging from the curbage on the rims, missing valve stem cap and permanent brake dust accumulation, this should be somewhat expected, no?? While admittedly impressive, some people should simply not own cars.........

      Oh we're judging a man by his accumulated brake dust now are we?! ;-) I'm beyond guilty when it comes to cosmetic care of wheels. I stay riding dirty.

      It's #drivingdirty

      I forgot my pegs were silver for awhile. It's hard to clean them. I'm terrible.

      Haha, walking by the car with the bald tires you would never ever guess how poorly it's taken care of. It's SUPER clean internally and externally. The red paint has no oxidation and it's waxed regularly. This was the dirties I've seen the car for a while.

      Underneath and in the engine bay? Well, it misses dreadfully under load, the spring seats have been broken for several years, the rear crank seal leaves a puddle if parked for more than 4 minutes, the timing belt was due 2 years ago and is cracking, the PCV is so restricted it doesn't register on the gauge, etc. Haha, priorities, we can only pick a couple.
