Me: 42+ year driver. Car: 1983 Mercedes 300SD. Old school: No 4WD, AWD, ABS, traction or stability controls, etc. (Yes it is my daily driver.)
Other car: Grand Marquis with best all season tires I have ever used Conti DWS Extreme, plus ABS, etc. Other-Other car: GMC Safari All Wheel Drive, ABS, etc. BFG Long Trail T/A's all season.
Rain, snow, sleet, ice: Hands down take the Benz with the Altimax Arctic. Three winters now and part of a summer too. Several seasons of tread remain. These tires are a sanctioned copy of Gislaved Nordfrost 3 "Swedish" Winter Tires. Low noise, very good wear, great tracking, traction, and stability. Slow turn-in but it is not a summer performance tire.
Was once behind a police cruiser fishtailing all over, he in turn behind a line of cars all sliding off the mild grade. Cruiser lights go on, road closed, but not for me and my Arctic's. Climbed the grade no problem.
