Were you using the stock tires? My '05 V8 RWD feels like it's on ice with the stock tires...and that's in the rain.I live in Chicago and my 2005 RWD SUCKED in the snow! The dealer told me it was the number one complaint and very embarrassing for them. But my 2008 STS-4 AWD is the BEST car I have ever driven in Chicago winters! Do need any more convincing????
I'm caught in one of those internal debates over snow tires on a fresh set of rims for the winter, or buying a 4x4 winter beater for the really harsh days.
