According to these people 10 years ago no car should have been on the road during snow, since back then there was no such thing as winter tires as they are defined today.
Hell, I took my 1990 Nissan Sentra POS through a snowstorm fine. I think my 2013 BMW can handle it. Yes, winter tires are better. But that's like saying "OMG THE FRONT OF YOUR CAR ISN'T MADE OF PLAYDOH? YOU'RE A HAZARD!"
Lol, you did warn me though. I applauded those guys here who differed but offered sane arguments for their positions. We have received snow over several days and I have driven in my summers just fine. Thankfully I have not yet died nor have I committed mass genocide on our roads due to my poor choice of tires
