      All-Wheel Drive is okay if you see lots of rain, snow, or dirt roads, but it’s not absolutely necessary.

      For most people, particularly those who live in urban areas, Front-Wheel Drive and Rear-Wheel Drive are a better alternative. They get better gas mileage and have less wear and tear on the drivetrain parts.

      However, the best choice for you would be a 4-Wheel Drive vehicle. Unlike All-Wheel Drive, 4-Wheel Drive can be disengaged, offers locking or limited-slip differentials, and has both High and Low gear ranges. This gets you better gas mileage when running in 2-Wheel Drive, which is what you’ll use 90% of the time in Michigan, more if you’re in the southern part of the Lower Peninsula. Then, when it snows, is icy outside, or you decide to go off-roading, you can engage the 4-Wheel Drive for better traction.

      I live in the northern part of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, near Petoskey, and my family has had all types of vehicles: Rear-Wheel Drive, Front-Wheel Drive, All-Wheel Drive, and 4-Wheel Drive. After our experiences, all the vehicles we own now (four of them, with one more likely soon now that my brother’s driving) are 4-Wheel Drive, and we use them a lot.

      I can provide a list of the SUVs that offer true 4-Wheel Drive as opposed to All-Wheel Drive. If you like the idea of a pickup truck, only the Honda Ridgeline is All-Wheel Drive. The rest are 4-Wheel Drive.

      I hope this has answered your question. If you have any more, please feel free to ask.

      Howdy from Texas!! Welcome derby sister! Good wheels are basically you get what you pay for. Don’t bother even looking at “pretty” or showy wheels, those with lights or swirly colored, they suck.
      Right now what is really popular, and I have seen this weekend many skaters like Snot Rocket (Kansas), Sparkle and Dynamite(Texas Rollergirls), are wearing Matter Wheels made especially for derby. They are super pricey, check the website http://www.matterusa.com.
      What is popular here in big D is Radar Speed Rays, which have a super grippy groove down the middle and aluminum hubs that are maintain roll well. Ask about which color best suits your weight, I think its if you are little try blues (

    Whats A Good Wheel Controller For Xbox360? What’s a good wheel that I can use for racing games for xbox360. I don’t want to break the bank maybe like 100-200 bucks (not adding a ctual game). I’d really like to have a manual shifter. Pedals are a must. What are some good racing games too. I don’t know what to get cause all I play now is battlfield 3. Thanks

      I would say HORI Xbox 360 Racing Wheel EX2, which has Steering Wheel and foot pedal controller. It features rumble capability to enhance your gaming experience to realism during game play. It has an easy and good grip and it is very stable. Its Analog foot pedals are very sensitive and responsive which gives realistic racing experience. HORI racing Wheel EX2’s vibration capability is good, whenever you make hard turns or smash against you competitors car or land hard after jumping through the ramps.

      Here you can find the actual user review on this wheel controller:

      And about racing games the best of them are:

      Forza Motorsport 4
      Forza Horizon
      Need for Speed: Most Wanted
      Need for Speed Hot Pursuit
      Driver San Francisco
      Burnout Paradise
      here you can find more racing games of Xbox 360:

      Hope this answer help.
