Re: Who is using Mobil 0-W20?

What does the FEH recommend using? I know the HCH recommends 0W-20, and I've used Mobil 1 0W-20 without any issues.

Re: uh......NO

if it is a traction issue, then it has nothing to do with weight of the wheel. need different tread pattern or snow tires. unless you want a different size rim but remain in the same weight class?
