Grab winter tires. Put some on my last stang and OMG what a difference over all seasons. You still have to be careful but it's the best investment if you get a lot of snow.

If you have a manual it's pretty easy but yes snow tires are the best way to go just regular snow tires not performance ones. Just be light one the throttle and try to stay in one lane as much as possible. No speeding and never trust other drivers

Don't count on it. Predictions so far call for lots of snow. The melting poles will get carried by the jet stream. Some people also say you can tell by all the acorn shells on the ground. Take notice when walking around your neighborhood. It's excessive where I live.

Not by the acorns, really, by the squirrels. They sense it, the worse the winter, the more they store, more caps. So if you don't have squirrels, it won't work lol

As I was taught to understand.

Well all I can say is buy some cheap rims and buy some winter force or blizack tires and it will makes driving a lot easier just not like a truck in 4 wheel drive

From Chicago too. Was driving a 99 mustang with an open diff, no abs, no traction control. I hope my 2013 will be a little better in the snow. Who needs a winter car?!

Blizaks are in tomorrow, going on the 17s and going on early to mid November depending on first snow fall and forecast.
