What are your thoughts, so far?
I was driving through the last snow storm of early 2012, and the snow was really wet (slushy), about 5 inches deep in spots.
Had the stock RE92's front and rear, and the rear tread was only about 1/16 inch deep.
Hit a certain part of the snow and back kicked out real fast. Faster than any other car that I have driven in the snow. I tried counter steering but it was already too far gone, and it keep going around until I was facing backwards towards the oncoming traffic.
Fortunately no one else was close to me!
That incident was enough, to research and order the spacers right there on the spot.
The handling of the car in the dry seems to me the same as without them, as I sometimes turn corners pretty briskly to keep a feel for how the car handles in those situations.
