My answer: Winter tires. I picked up a set of Michelin xIce i3's on steelies over Christmas. It's like night and day. Now bombing around in slush, freezing rain, snow, whatever is fine. They're also a touch quieter than my factory 17's.
Now if only the dealer would get my block heater fixed.
I am with you there, I purchased the same tires as you 195/65R15 and they cut through the snow with ease. I see a ton of SUV's on the road with all seasons and I smile as I pass them on the road. 4WD/AWD is a performance feature and not a safety feature!
