i had a 91 tracer and a 95 escort, both standards and never used snows on them... they were little sherman tanks in the snow.... foot and a half of fresh snow? no problem....left everyone else on the side of the road...
my '01 focus was ok w/ all seasons but as it was an automatic the snows made a world of difference....
the '12 still has all seasons 17" on it as i've not gotten round to getting snows for it (yesterday we had our first sno tht stuck) so we'll see.
