been driving on snow for several yrs during winter... 1st time i've actually enjoyed doing it today now with a subie+snow tires. cant believe what a HUGE difference it is from a fwd car+all season. i admit i had 'a bit of fun' with the subie (just to test it out) but needless to say a driving tip that comes to mind is 'always keep your distance'.
awd+snow tires can stir overconfidence. resist the temptation and just err on the side of safety.
