read your owners manual your tires are not rated or recommended for snow...and i know traction in the rain pwnz me so snow is a hopless shot.. so i will get a gsx for winter driving in alaska when i get there
I have been driving my 2 week old 04 E-Blue around, but you have to be allotttttt more careful. Driving over fresh snow over the top of ice is a really "BADDDD THING!!!!!!" I will be getting a really good set all season tires for mine. Most front wheel drive cars respond well with just all seasons! as I don't do much of the racing thing! I just love it when people see this car & ask "What is that" like they have never seen one!

With the stock BFG KDW-IIS. No way in hell. Excellent wet and dry traction....NOT recommended for snow.
I've had mine out with my 225/40R18 All seasons (smaller tire better in the snow bigger its worse...so yeah mines worse but better than stock) the past week. We've been snowed on like 3 days here. The other day (Thu) we got around 6" at my house. I took my baby out, cause I had to go to class at 7am, and 2nd gear start....taking it VERY easy on the throttle the car was perfectly fine. Right through 6" of snow like no other. I live on a hill too, no problems there either.
Had him out tonight, roads were literally a SHEET of ice...the road just glistened. You got out of your car and almost fell. Again 2nd gear starts I was fine. With a 1st gear start I was spinning a bit even with the throttle I would normally give it. But taking it to like 9% throttle I was taking off perfectly fine (9% throttle compliments of SAFC-II LOL). But I felt better in 2nd, so thats what I did.
My driveway has about 2-3" of packed ice at the start of it, and backing in and pulling in my car does just fine. It crawled up over a foot and a half pile of snow when I was backing in one day. WHOOSH.
But yeah, my baby's a snow monstie, he can do it. Just get some all-seasons or snow tires. You'll be set.
with the stock BFG's well lets just say, if your sliding around parking lots then YES THEY LOVE THE SNOW!! but driving in the snow...man i get stuck going downhill (not really but[8D]) i havent changed my tires so i dont know how it goes with other tires...all i know if im drivin the truck around this winter

Took mine out for a test drive in the snow with the BF's on and wasn't too reassured. I second all the comments previously made. Snow driving in the BF's is a no no. I take my parents Ram 3500 Cummins Turbo Diesel 4x4 to work when it snows. That's not too bad a ride when I can't drive my SRT.
