I find that flipping into 4x4 does help. I'm a reasonable and concientious driver to begin with...you know...make sure you're not too close to someone, go speed limit, don't drink coffee and put on makeup (
) while driving, stop for mother ducks crossing the road with her ducklings, avoid skirmishes with 3 year olds on bikes...etc.
4x4 for me works well in less than perfect conditions for the most part.
I agree with the winter tire stuff, but I'm of Scottish decent and am much too cheap to go that route.
BTW: Why in hell's are we arguing about winter driving. I think my tires melted to the pavement today. We should be arguing about how to properly BBQ a hamburger or how to cool off the house best. Our power went down for an hour today, and man I missed my fans.
