Once I do that (have some strictly winter tires), then I'll look into upgrading the other 3 season tires.
Definitely have a spare set for winter with winter tires. I can't just plow through roads like I did before, I have gotten stuck and it's a bit difficult to get out in the Michigan winters when it snows bad. Overall not terrible tho, I think it's mainly because I'm lowered that I have most issues.

You should try driving around closer to lake Huron, as we get snow storms off the lake (I'm located just outside of Port Huron). My wife's 00 Accord is running Barums on stock rims, and she drives it all the time without thinking about it. They're an all season tire, but have nice deep treads. Her car isn't lowered either. I was looking at going with a set of them for winter use (on stock rims) for my own car, as the Dunlops are more of a summer tire (had them on my Geo Prizm winter car and almost got stuck in 2 inches of the stuff). I immediately swapped them out for my stock tires, and solved the slipping and sliding.
Our winters are part of the reason I haven't lowered my 99, as it basically makes driving a PIA when the stuff gets deep. But then, I do sort of park the car in the winter months, and use the Geo for when it gets bad. That thing is a tank, and I rarely get stuck with it unless I'm doing something stupid.

Re: DesiKid's 01 Accord Sedan EX-L

99% done wrapping. Just need some more bodywork done on the rear driver side door and it should be finished by next week.

Absolutely in love with this car!

Looks awesome in the photos, not an easy task to take on. Are you going to wrap the front lip to match the rest of the lip kit?

Thanks Red, as of now I'm just going to drive with the lip black, I might get a pro to wrap it in the future but I like it black for now

Re: DesiKid's 01 Accord Sedan EX-L

nice work with the wrap. you could wrap the front lip. it'll be easier if you take it off and have someone to help you hold it still while you go around the sides. You don't have to wrap all of the bottom side of it
