Alright, let me start out saying that I don't want to do this nor would I ever do this normally. But I am currently stuck without my winter set in CO looking to drive i70 and all I have on my WRX are some Sumitomo HTR Z3s. I need to get to a ski resort though, and I'm a driver for a few people this weekend.
I'm planning on grabbing some chains from Walmart this afternoon before I head to Abay on Saturday. I've checked http://www.cotrip.org/map.htm#/roadConditions and it looks as if the roads are snow/slush along loveland pass. I will have chains with me if need be. However, how can I best navigate these roads on tires designed for summer?
I am able to drive home and get switched out thanksgiving. Until then, I need to survive and not hold up i70 with a stupid mistake.
Background- yes, have driven in all sorts of winter conditions. Just never on a summer tyre.
