Too much slow and without any go means you car is as good as a car in a ditch.

A lot of old timers still like RWD with snow, along with 5000 miles sythetic oil change and 25000 miles tranny fluid changes....... There is nothing wrong with that except that modern technology is simply passing them by. Snow tire's only advantage is shorter stop distance, a good set of all season will come very close in stopping power. Today AWD system are much better than what was available 20 years ago. A AWD system such as X-drive or Quattro can improve on performance in some areas and weight penalty and gas mileage penalty is very minimal.
