Snow tires definitely make a difference, and I would never drive my W202 in the winter without them. But when it is just a dusting of snow, pretty much any car is going to have a harder time. That is the worst traction condition, aside from ice. There isn't enough snow on the ground for the tire to push through, instead the friction from the tire just melts it a bit and makes things slippery.Not even an inch of snow & my car is already sliding around. Do these cars really suck during the winter or what?
Im really considering not driving it much during the winter.
Maybe you didn't realize that I live in an area of the country that is surrounded by several big mountain ranges. The San Bernardino Mountains, San Gorgonio Mountains and the San Gabrial Mountains. Ranging in elevation from 8000 to over 12000 feet. I frequent these mountains and have Climbed most of the tall ones... Yes I do drive in the snow.yah rudedude you got it rough with all that snow in san bernardino haha!
