Good to hear that the stockers are working for you. I have a few miles under my belt as well in Midwestern Winters, so as long as the tires are good I think I can handle it. Thanks.

I found that even a lil snow with my stock tires that were on the car when purchased, the car handled terribly in snow. We only had a light dusting and the car was all over the place it was crazy. My '93 Sable handled better and it was front wheel drive. Even the next day when the temps steadily rose overnight to a balmy 55F the car was awful on what spots where the leftovers of snow was left (the slush) on the main roads. I slide a few times while Kia's flew right by me. I also noticed that even when its well above 50 my car will warn me about ICE POSSIBLE. Why is that? On Saturday here in town it was almost 70F, but when I got in my car you would think it was 22F because the first thing displayed on the INFO Center was ICE POSSIBLE. Never could get a clear reason for this.

We have had a lousy Winter here in Wisconsin, and overall I am pleased with how my '08 LS Coupe has performed thus far. The stock Continental tires have proven to be capable performers for me. And they have had to tackle some ugly drifts at times, and now tons of standing water in places with the recent thaw we are having. The Cobalt keeps going, although with a small car you have to be aware of your low clearance level, especially after owning trucks.
This has been a great car. I am very satisfied with this purchase.
