Also took it to an empty lot later and had some fun


Supposed to get 12-18 in my area this afternoon, we'll see how that goes..

I live in Quebec, and we already have 40" of snow. So i think i can tell you one thing or two about winter driving lol
I had 2 pathfinder and one ridgeline (old version). My 2016 Canyon is the best winter machine as far. But like any vehicule you need real and good winter tire. They will make all the difference in the world. The grip is one thing, but the breaking part is where you can see a good winter set. So, get good soles and get snow boogey like i do every day for the last 5 weeks....

We had some pretty icey conditions this weekend and the duratracs and auto 4x4 did very well. Never felt like it was pushed too hard to lose control. Love the tires!

Shit how'd you know what I have!?


Cops were too busy with the ridiculous amount of people that shouldn't be driving who were in ditches off the highways... But yeah I cleaned off the lights and plate just after that

Replaced the OEM tires on our Canyon SLT diesel with duratrac's right after we took delivery last March. Today had to go up the hill on our neighbors driveway to get tractor to blow 6+ inches of snow off our driveways. Was able to get up the hill in two wheel drive. Was never able to do this in our old truck, an S10 ZR2 with BF Goodrich tires. Do not know if it is the tires or the truck, but think it is the tires. Picture from top of hill and bottom after snow blown, yes it is a long driveway.

We got some high winds & extreme cold here the last few days. Yesterday on the way home from work was especially windy & there were drifts forming all over the place, so naturally I had to test out the Autotrak & make sure the Blizzaks still worked.....Verdict Yup they still work! LOL



The snow was very hard packed from the high winds & packed into the slots of my rims.


Not exactly the kind of temps you want to be breaking down in or be stuck/stranded in!


Those Temps are hard on everything!

If you have an air compressor blow gun, blow the snow out of those wheels before you park it - it can pack around the wheel then if it warms up (warm brake rotor) while it's parked then it could slough off the top of the wheel and land at the bottom of the wheel, then you'll have a big lump of ice in the bottom of the wheel and really throw it out of balance.


I've had to clean out my wheels several times already, almost always the back wheels. The fronts stay much cleaner.

I didn't remove the snow until the next day, kind of wanted to see if I could feel anything at speed on the way to work the next day. Never noticed anything.

In the past with other vehicles I don't think I ever had the issue your describing happen. What would happen however is the snow would melt a bit (from the heat generated on the pads on the rotor) & then freeze as everything cooled off. Then when you went to drive away next time you could feel & hear the ice breaking free on initial movement.

Used to have this problem with my '97 Subaru Impreza. Always thought it was ironic, given that it was the most capable winter driver I'd owned to that point...

...I used to blast the wheels in a self-service carwash, same difference I guess.
