Hey Zep! Doesn't everyone in Buffalo have those?
ha ha - When properly equipped with awesome performance snow tires, this car is amazing when it's rough out.
no not for me or my G8, If is snowing, raining or the Sun is not out my G8 stay in the garage LOL
Honestly, I feel safer and more "in control" than if I had a cheap POS winter beater. Never once got stuck or in a bad situation in the g8 in all 4 winters so far, this car is amazing!! I am currently running the stock 18" GT rims with Hankook IceBear tires, those things have amazing grip!
Sure, I worry about "the other guys" sliding into me, but those who regularly commute in the bad stuff generally are better at preparing to stop and/or handle themselves when it's rough out. Plus, I can get up and out of the way if I see someone not paying attention or sliding out of control.
I guess I can say that "I feel like I'm wearing those tread things" when I drive the G8 in the morning when it's 24 degrees outside and slick. In complete control, along with the self-control-winter-driving techniques also required depending on conditions!
