Default steep driveway issue

On my RSX I have Nokian WR G2's which are better than all seasons but not dedicated snow tires.


My driveway is uphill and when it snows/ice I can not get it up. (haha)

(stop the jokes)

My neighbors driveway is very similar and I can it up fine....makes no sense.

Will dedicated snow tires help me? Will anything help me?

Oh to make matters worse my fiancee has a Civic Coupe with all seasons and she cant get it up at all where I can sometimes.

Dont mean to question your driving skills, but how much experience do you have driving in the snow? Is the car auto or manual? If its a manual, how much experience do you have driving a manual in the snow?

I ask this because I notice that some people dont really know how to handle snow or a manual for that matter. Its just that, I come from a country where there is no such thing as automatic, no FWD, and snow doesnt get cleaned off the streets. And most people drive 30 year old cars, which, needless to say dont come with traction control.

If the car is manual, try carrying a little bit of speed and keep it in 2nd gear. The key is not over-torquing the tires so they won't spin.

Or you could just try shoveling your driveway ;).

I think its time to start parking in the street. We wouldnt want to risk underbody damage would we?

Thats what I would do.
