How well do the cars handle one winter roads? I have to make a trip up to Michigan this weekend.
As well as can be expected for a heavy RWD car.

The "skinny" tires help, but if you come to a complete stop on ice or packed snow, be prepared for your rear end to go sideways when you try to get moving again. Judicious use of 2nd gear and the clutch will help.

Other than that, the stock tires seem to do well and ground clearance is pretty good.

Take your time, you WILL NOT go sideways during acceleration. I drove my car all winter in rediculous snow.
