But let it see a snowflake or worse several inches of them and its an adventure just trying to get moving on an snow/ice covered road.
A slight slope is a virtual impossibility and gives the TC system fits.
I was worried the 18" Michelin "summer-only" Titanium tires would be that bad
in the snow so I very proactively put winter tires put on my Titanium back in early November.
The expense of winter tires and wheels is quite a bit to swallow but when you need to arrive safely at a destination in the middle of a snow storm and have fun while doing it they're well worth it. Anything that can make winter more fun, safer and less aggravating is probably worth it.
