I always get a laugh out of the dummies who constantly spout BS about how summer tires are fine in the snow "if you're careful". It's not about being able to stop or turn when you have 100ft to do it, it when you have to make an EMERGENCY stop because something unexpected happens. Before some idiot comes and says "but if you are careful blah blah blah", it's called an emergency for a reason, only a complete moron believes that they can anticipate every situation.
OP- no this wasn't directed at you, inevitably someone will come in here to tell us all how to drive and that we must suck at it because we're smart enough to use the right equipment for the job. Preemptive smack down
