I just posted my DTS Blizzard photos in the DTS photo thread. Can't speak for snow performance. I've been snowed in for three days now.

Didn't have a blizzard here in east TN, but last week we did have some ice/snow, and the traction control/front wheel drive did help me get up a hill that I don't think would have been possible otherwise.

I was impressed that my car still was able to maneuver in the snow. I drove through mild to few inches high snow with out trouble. Just go slow :D

The two biggest advantages our DTS' have over virtually all other front wheel drive cars is the weight of the engine and the power. I've never been stuck in any Northstar Cadillac and I live in the Northeast. This past weekend we only got about 3-4 inches and I never left the house but no doubt it would have been a piece of cake.

Living in Northern Iowa, our 2006 DTS has seen its share of deep snow. The only time we ever have gotten stuck is when we go through such tall snow that we get hung up. If the snow is not so deep that it just lifts the car up off the ground, it will make it though.

We also have a 2006 AWD SRX that sits a little higher off the ground and have never been stuck in it. But that is to be expected.

We have Michelin Primacy's on the DTS and they are quiet, handle well, and go though anything that our car can handle.

Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3 are my winter tires. They do an excellent job.
