RE: c240 rwd in snow???
In my experience, All-season tires are mediocre at best in ALL driving conditions. Installing a dedicated snow tire on all four wheels has meant the difference between stopping short of an intersection and sliding right into cross traffic. This benefits all auto makes, not just M-B.
A friend with a new Mazda thought his car actually picked up speed during a slide. He ordered snow/ice tires the next day.
Oh yeah, FWD only helps when you start from a standstill. It could actually hurt during braking on poor traction conditions.
