Upstate NY Evos

I'm new to the forum and actually will be picking up my first new car (2010 Lancer Evo X GSR Octane Blue) next week. I'm wondering if there are any other Evo owners in upstate new york and if they have any opinion on how the car handles on the frequently un-plowed roads in the southern Adirondacks.

The car handles flawlessly. First thing you would need is a set of winter tire. DO NOT DRIVE ON THE STOCK ADVANS. You really could injure yourself.

I'm having the dealer switch them out for a set of winter tires before I pick it up next week.

If they're going to switch out the stock Advans for some winter tires, either keep the Advans, or get them to knock off about $1800 from the OTD price of the car. Those things are pretty much some of the best OEM tires to come out of the factory on a new car.

oops, sorry didn't see the regional section before.

I'm keeping the stock tires, I just needed something else for the winter season.

Anyways I live on the Great Sacandaga Lake, its northwest of Albany by about 50 miles

I'm running Yokohama W.Drive winter tires. Blasts through snow in Berkshires like a champ (when driving at reasonable speed for snow of course).

Evo + Snow + Parking lot = fun
