If you have snow tires perhaps, but the stock continentals aren't very good even in just a little bit of snow. With the roads just wet its fine, but even being very light on the throttle with this drive by wire and hyper sensitive TCS was a bit of an issue.

Of course the o.p's snow tires were pretty much shot by the sounds of things though to be worse than even the poor stock all seasons.
