I am in Rochester and getting crap load of snow.. So far I am doing just fine w/ stock goodyear 17". I fish tail & drift a lot, but recovers rather quickly. (years of practice on need for speed 3 & MSR.) Traction control and ABS help a lot too.
suggestions, don't drive too fast, and brake early. you should be fine. (unless you have lots of big hills in your area then you are screwed.)
