Default Anyone who drives a Honda Accord COUPE in Snow? How does it handle snowy drives?

How does your care handle in the snow? I find mine does not feel stable and easily slips. I have new all season tires and I spin out. It feels like a little tap on the break and the car goes spinning. note: I live in CO and know how to drive in snow.

The problem is the tires. All season tires are NOT suited for WINTER driving, at all. Proper winter tires are a much softer compound, and have much greater stickiness at minus temps, than any A/S tire has. The tread also does much better job of "shedding snow " than a all season tire does.In tests on ice, two identical cars, with the same driver, both times, the winter tires stopped faster, and straighter than all seasons did. In snow, the winter tire is simply the better choice. Of course you have to put FOUR of them on the car, not just two on the drive wheels.I have a 2009 Chevy Cobalt, and the first thing I did after we picked it up in September, was to buy four Goodyear Nordics and four steel rims, to replace the alloy summer rims. By having two complete sets of tires, we don't need to break them off the rims, fall and spring, each year. Just swap the complete tire and rim combo, twice a year.In Quebec, it is illegal to drive without winter tires, from November to April, and if you are caught, it is a two thousand dollar fine. I live in Ontario and have 45 years of accident free commercial driving behind me. That is about two million miles, no accidents.Jim B. Toronto.
