My GTO was my DD for 2 years and I put over 50k miles on it. It was driven in sun, rain, and snow.
I tried driving in the snow with my summer tires and got stuck in my experiment. I swapped my extra set of wheels for my all-seasons and was able to get everywhere I needed. At the time I lived in the middle of no-where. Hills, turns, last to be plowed, ect. I was able to plow snow with my front bumper before I started loosing traction.
The GTO is very versitile and by far the best RWD car I've ever driven in the snow(GTO > C5Z06 > 05 Mustang GT and my 97SS that just didn't move in the snow). All of them had stock size tires and very good all-seasons.
I'm driving my C5Z through the snow today in fact. We have about 1" of un-plowed road at my job and my ride home is going to be little more and maybe some ice in the mix with the temps going down a tad.. Granted its mostly flat here but no real issues. I'll post some video of me crusing with no issues under 35mph.
I honestly felt just as safe in my cars as I do driving my friends normal cars.
