my 04 handles horribly in the snow and ice. You'd be better off walking then taking it out. Even with all season tires, if your not carefully with acceleration, you'll be going sideways real quick.

All season tires are summer tires with a different name. The only tires good for north/northeast type winters is winter tires. My car doesn't handle too bad but my ultra high performance all season tires are like driving on hockey pucks this time of year. Blizzaks seem to be the way to go. I have been lucky this yer as mine is my DD and i refused to spend the $ on Blizzaks but will probably do for next winter if it is anything like this year.

WHOA.. That's crazy.. My car came with Fushion (whatever's) tires. I pick up a set of slightly used TOYO Proxies 245/45/17's for $200 from a reputable local tire place. They also sell in Ebay so I felt good about the quality. My car used to slide sideways just putting in park. I haven't got stuck yet with the TOYO's . My Stang hooks on dry pavement awesome now too. I thought my trans was slipping and on it's way out with the CHEAPO's... LOL...

IMO the TOYO Proxies are the best tire I ever had on any car (besides Drag Radials) LOL

I have Michelin X-ice 3s' on and my 14 V6 handles like a tank. The key is how easy you're on your gas pedal, just a tad more and its merry go round.. No matter if its a 4wd. It came with summer tires, so it only made sense to get proper winter tires on once the sun disappeared.

These are some great car people, don't risk em with all season carrom balls

My 2012 just went through worst winter in many years here in Indiana and was very good in snow and ice. Not bad for a California Special with a tune!

I have an 04 and my ABS/TCS computer is fried. Mine doesnt handle that well on snow and ice even though I'm kind of used to driving on it around DC. I've slid past the entrance to my complex a few times and have gotten squirrelly going to work. When the TCS worked, it wasnt too bad overall.

Nothing can possibly be worse than FUSION HP tires. The Rubber compound is so slippery. At $69/each... Go figure :-[

My mustang handled like a dream in the snow. Never had an issue here in eastern PA and I never missed a day of work due to snow. I didn't drive slow nor did I drive like an idiot, I honestly had no issue driving at a normal pace whatsoever. I threw a set of Firestone Winterforce tires on my winter set of 17" wheels back in November and that was easily the best decision I've made this winter, lol.
