|ebiegas||I have been driving my 2002 svt focus in Michigan with snow tires for years! I do have an Explorer for back up if the snow is too deep.|

Had some snow over the last few days and my lowered 5spd SE did great. The stock economy tires drive like stock economy tires so as long as you keep that in mind, you're fine.
I also had a fun game of "confuse the stability control" since it allows a little bit of yaw before catching and attempting to correct.

|PandaCar||Yeah, but that's NC snow! Try the white Canadian S#$T, your 18" summer tires won't get you up a 1% gradient!|

|paul21||It seems one of the transmission updates (not sure which one) helped the TCS out quite a bit. Last winter, I could put it to the floor in a parking lot and it would quickly settle out to just over Idle RPM. It made pulling out onto a highway a risky maneuver, but now it's a lot better. The tires on this car are a little wider than other compact cars (215 vs Corolla&Civic 195-205) so it helps a lot to get better all seasons and keep the psi at 35 in the cold. The siping on the all season stock conti's make water and snow driving excessively dangerous sometimes.|

Focus has been fine on stock tires here in MD so far. I've been impressed.

|BaconZombie||Mine did fine in the snow. A little patience and know-how is all it takes.|
