We got about 2 inches today and I still have on my high performance tires (need to switch to winters asap) and came out of the gym and saw snow on the roads and thought ****. Drove home and slid a lot, but LFB and trottle and home safe. I also pulled my ABS fuse ages ago as well.
And you live in Lancaster? lol I'm in Pittsburgh and have run winter tires for the past 3 years... I'll never go back. Winter tires help, even on cold dry roads.

Even with an inch on the roads, summer tires are completely unsafe. I've driven all seasons in 2-3 inches and although it's do-able and you won't really get stuck with our AWD, it's still much safer and easier to steer and stop with winter tires.
