  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Nope I have all season tires on my Envoy, plus the electronic 2WD/4WD is handy for winter driving. The boy has full time 4WD on the Hummer H3. Only the wife has 2WD/FWD on the Traverse.

On a car with manual power brakes and a manual transmission, I was perfectly happy with 4 seasons ... Good 4 seasons with plenty of tread left. But with cars equipped with ABS, winters are must have equipment. Without ABS, when your wheels slide, you're in control. You can feather the pedal, you can stomp it, or you can let off all together. With ABS, the computer will fight any attempt on your part. You're along for the ride.  And if they can't find enough traction .. ABS will leave you without any brakes at all. Been there, done that. FORD that.

 

As for 4wd and AWD ... IMHO that only gets you to the scene of the accident easier.

My cars are put up for the winter.  Both daily drivers are 4X4 and equipped with aggressive tires already. Bring it.

The old ones didn't, but these new All-Terrain T/A KO2 do.
