I have about 18,000 miles on my 2004 CC.

I want to drive more and one of the factors taking me off the road is the threat of snow. It is not wear and tear on the finish. I expect the car to get old just like me. It is that the extreme summer tires are useless in the snow.

I took advantage of the chance to buy a second set of factory wheels and will be setting up snow tires after this summer.

So my two questions for the board:

1) What experiences has anyone had with driving in the snow in their Maseratis?

2) Any preferences on snow tire brands or models for the Coupes?

I have Hankook and they worked pretty well. But if the snow is deep you will do quite a bit of sliding.
Even if you do not get a lot of snow, snow tires are a must if the temp is below 40 deg. Summer tires will become too hard at low temps and you will begin spinning and sliding the tires even on dry pavement.

Wheels for '05 coupe.

Partsman,
do you have wheels for a 2005 coupe?
I already own the winter tires, and would prefer to have a second set of wheels instead of having the tires changed over twice a year.

winter driving

I purchased my car last July. I have high performance winter tires (Pirelli). No problems. Take off the MSP and enjoy the silde!
