MAN WHAT A BAD DECION I MADE on buying an is300. when i bough my is300 ithough i was getting into the hottest car but as soon as we got snow, i found out that was the worst car to drive. i was drving maybe 15 mile per hour and the car went off the road. i call the lexus and it old them what just happend and ask them to get me snow tire on their expense and those mother fucker told me that wasnt their fult. so i recomend to anyone who get snow in their state not to get an is300. IS THE WORST CAR TO DRIVE ON THE SNOW.

Omg, dude, you have a REAR WHEEL DRIVE car, with 45 series sports tires! What in the world did you think was going to happen?

Just cause it doesn't drive well in the snow, doesn't mean it isn't a hot car. How many freakin exotic sports cars do you see in the snow?

If you can afford an IS300, you can afford a 1000 dollar winter beater.

I would think you'd be smart enough to buy SNOW tires for driving in the SNOW.

Can't believe I even responded to such a stupid post.[/b]

I made the same mistake of thinking the summers would be okay with light snow.. but i was wrong~

just get snowtires

i've seen is's with snow tires.. and it moves along well with the rest of them~

and when summer rolls around~ you can be hugging corners like there is no tomorrow~

If I have to hear one more whiney post about how bad SUMMER TIRES on a RWD vehicle are in the snow, I'm going to start hunting down these people at their home addresses and start beating them with my shoes.

GET SNOW TIRES!

The car drives like a fucking champ w/ snow tires on.
Wanna know why?
BECAUSE SNOW TIRES ARE DESIGNED TO GRIP IN SNOW!
Summer tires have NO GRIP in snow!

HELLO PEOPLE!

That is all (sorry soy :-? )

Get snow tires and learn how to drive. I have not had a problem driving 30 miles one way to work in the snow yet. I would even say that with the right snow shoes, the car is a fuking tank. I have gotten through $hit that I thought for sure I would be walking home from!

That's a helluva post soy! :lol:

Never thought someone like "you" would be so kind into walking someone through like that. :D

Now go back to the parking lot and resume ripping some new asses. 8)

Oh yeah one more time for the record:

ITS NOT THE FREKKIN' CAR, ITS THE TIRES!

What do you expect is going to happen in the snow when you have a rear wheel drive car with 45's on it. Your not exactly going to be able to take those roads at 90mph like there was no snow at all. By a 4x4 if your going to be in the snow. I'm done here.

Ya know, I learned to drive in the winter with a Nissan RWD 5spd pickup. You know, the tiny ones that have maybe 20 lbs of weight over the crappy all season rear tires?

The IS is fine :) I've got the all seasons on now, and have driven the past two weeks in snow, sleet, and ice and had no problems. If you know how to handle the car, and you're not running the stock summer tires, you should be fine. I'm thinking states that get snow should start to require winter driving courses...
