I might have to get my tires studded, as they don't seem to work nearly how they should for winter tires!

Cars in the shop now getting a fixed right rear wheel bearing, will see how the little bmw holds up over the next few months!

Studs are really only good for ice and I wouldn't recommend using them on a non 4wheel drive car. Your best option would be to get a good set of snow tires and ask to get them siped (or take your current tires in and get them siped) (Siping is when they cut slits into the tread and it spreads out to create more traction in the snow and rain....

Front wheel drive little Renault Clio, and it handles perfectly fine until you reach sludge at the same level as my car, then not so good

Shrug... We had rain here last night. Second storm this month which is quite refreshing. So far this month, we have had more rain than the previous 18 months combined.

We have a Dodge Grand Caravan right now, which handles a LOT better than the Chevy Suburban we used to have. I loved my Suburban but it was a gas guzzling pain in the butt to drive in the snow. It fish tailed horribly, even with only a dusting or ice on the road. The caravan handles much, much better. Though, we'll never EVER live in the north again (that is a promise ) so we hopefully won't ever have to worry about snow again.
