Respost, eh, this is for Volvos in snow, whereas that other thread is "winter mode" which can be quite different depending on your climate.

Either way, sweet Bertone!

I hope we get some snow this weekend so I can contribute to this thread. I'm piecing together a winter wheels setup tomorrow with studded snows all around. I'm excited to see how it does compared to the 850 wagon in the snow. I'm from VT originally, so a bit of snow doesn't phase me like it does most people here in the pacific nw. lol

Last winter before lowering, now I wait for snow in Belgrade while the rest of the country is under snow.
Wonder if my air damn would act as snow plow
