Well was quite suprised ..how much better the Zaf A handled and held the road on both snow and ice over the bad spell of weather we had just lately with TC (Traction control) and ESP (electronic stability program) and the ABS, than my 1992 cavalier sri......100% better ..

well, by the time i got the new wheels there was no more snow so i cant tell how it performed but on the stock wheels it did very well aside from the time when the parking lot was solid ice, IT WAS HOPELESS. i had to deflate the tyres about 50% so that i could have more traction and chip off the ice as well.

The new wheels with the performance tyres on damp roads holds very well and very grippy in dry.
