As part of a bigger road trip, I'm flying in to LV on the 16th May and need to get to SF by the 18th by car.
My initial thought was to leave Las Vegas early morning to head towards Lake Tahoe then the following morning, across to SF but I'm a bit uncertain about how my rental (Hertz Dodge Challenger, so it's hardly a nimble lightweight car!) will take to winding mountainy roads and even more so if there is snow/ice at that time in the highest places of the mountain pass.
I understand that having snow chains is a requirement and I doubt Hertz would let me put them on the car anyway..
So, what are my options if LV->Lake Tahoe->SF is "out of the question"?
