went to turn down the street after exiting my driveway and slid right across the street into the curb , screwed up my stock Bullit wheel ,
I HATE SNOW / Rookie mistake ...............

Stangs and Snow don't mix homie .... I learned that a LONG time ago. If any white is falling I DON'T bother trying. Sorry about your beat up rim.

Rubbish. A good set of snow tires is.all you need. And a set of nuts to hold the slide you end up in on every corner.

Sorry this happened, this makes me nervous.... I'm in Richmond, VA... Some years we get no snow at all, some years we get 3 feet. Theres no predicting it. I *will* be driving in the snow with this car, there's no saying when. This car is my DD, so it's a matter of time... Yikes

Learn how to drift, then snow driving will be a delight! It's the only time of year that the cops won't bust you for sliding around a corner. Lol
Oh, sorry about your wheel. You really should invest in a new set of wheels and tires so you can keep your old ones as winter wheels.
Thank goodness their wasn't a car attached to that curb you hit. I'd say you were lucky giving the circumstances.

Give me a break... even ferraris have snow settings on their tc. I've driven my mustangs in the snow every year. Nbd. You can drive any car in the snow. Its just about the right tires and a smart driver.

Hey, don't get angry at yourself because you can't drive in the snow. There are THOUSANDS of rwd trucks, suvs, cars, and vans that do just fine in the snow.

This is dumb, he slid into a curb because of snow. If ur car is dd, and it snows where u live, this will probably happen, its not his fault. And also its a mustang not a tampon on wheels! Put some bricks in the trunk and enjoy your car!

Yeah I'm in canada bro and I know 2 guys that drive their shelbys, one guy with an 01 cobra, myself in a mach 1, in the snow. No problems. Never curbed it and I spend lots of time sliding around.

I prefer laying rubber on the road not skiing through damn snow. Driving 15mph is F'N boring, 145mph is more my speed.

Keep driving like that and whether or not to drive in the snow will be the least of your concerns as catch the bus, walk or take a taxi. See what I'm getting at is driving a 'rear wheel drive' anything is no more stupid then driving 145. Just observing the obvious here is all. I know plenty about driving in the snow and going fast, I mean really fast.. Like 185+ fast, on a bike.

On topic though sucks to swipe curbs.. Hit one doing doughnuts in HS on dry pavement... Ouch

Car control is exciting no matter what speed if your on or near the limit. If you feel the need for a cock measuring contest then I suggest your local gay bar. I have no problem driving my mustang in the winter whatsoever. If you dont have the tallent to doso, that is your problem. Stop telling everyone, we get it, you don't drive your mustang in the snow. Being a prick and talking about all the illegal things you do makes you look like an infant.

So challenging my 145 in a 4 wheel car is any diff than doing 185 on a 2 wheel ?? Im not sure I get that logic but ok.

I've got nothing to prove.
If you think driving in snow is stupid but driving 145 is smart and don't understand that logic then there's no point., because you won't get it until its too late. Not being an ***, but I can be. Actually trying help you out but whatev.

No harm no foul bro.... I've got thick skin so these comments have zero effect on me. I get your point about 145 and understand the risk.
