I also go to narrower tires on the smallest rims that fit - with
higher aspect ratio. In the slop we get around here half the winter,
even wide SNOW tires act like flying saucers. But on 4 good narrow
snows, and drive accordingly.
It is also a very real problem when braking with a RWD automatic
transmission car in wet sloppy conditions.
I've driven several million KMs, slightly less than half in winter,
and about half on rear drive vehicles - although my first was Front
drive. In the early years I just put snows on the front - but once I
had driven with snows on all 4, I'd never go back to rear only.
Thank goodness there are plenty of guys, like our friend dr_jeff that do not
have a lift, that can hang out in the NGs and do my proof reading for us.
Keep it up, it saves me the trouble LOL
