For sure, always brake A LOT sooner, and drive slower around corners. I'm suggesting studded tires because in my experience it helps a lot. I put a set of studded tires on my '02 Impala and that helped me out greatly last winter. I put non-studded winter tires on my Impala this year and they don't grip as well in acceleration or cornering as the studded tires did. I drive hotel shuttles for a resort and our RWD Ford Transit dually vans have studded tires which helps also. Driving 12 people and their luggage to the airport is kind of important. You need all the traction you can in a town where it snows 300" a year, haha. As far as sports go, I don't care for basketball, but I AM a CHIEFS FAN!
