Snow has been scarce in the Chicago area the last couple of years, but on the few days that I have driven my Challenger in the snow the car was great with 18" wheels and Blizzak tires. No skidding, no slipping, no getting stuck and no problems with traction so far. Road grippage(is that a word?) is top notch with these tires.
However the ride sucks. The snow tires are noisy, steering is clumsy, handling is not as good and there's definitely a difference in the way the car feels. Car feels more upright and like it's on rails, and you don't get that wide-track close-to-the-ground performance feel that you get with the stock wheels and tires.
Still.....I'll take the hassle of driving around with snow tires on for 3 months out of the year. Beats getting stuck in the snow, or skidding out and crashing the car.
