I just purchased a set of four Michelin X-Ice snow tires for my Spectra. Here is a pic of them. They quiet for a snow tire too. When we get some snow I will let you all know how they do.

$540 installed.
Hmm... that's actually not too bad.. where did you get them?

On my talon I had to get 4 new H rated tires (Goodyear OFCOURSE!!!) and all four tires and install with insurance on them was around $500 as well. I believe so.. that was a few years ago! LOL :haha:

I woke up to about 4 inches of heavy wet snow this morning. The tires did great in it. :)

This past week we got some snow. I drove the Spectra home one night from work 30 miles in the middle of a snow storm. The interstate was snow packed and the Michelin X-ice snow tires did great. I highly recommend them.

I havent been up to too much latley Mike not much at all. A little meet would sound good if your Spectra ran better. Sorry to hear about that issue. Thats really weird the motor is still turning after you shut it off. It doesnt sound good. Good luck with it.
