I heave cheapo Cooper tires on also, and they kinda suck in the *rain*, let alone the snow :(
I have cooper treadsetters on right now...they seem to like the snow....drove home on 4" of unplowed snow last night and they felt like they were solid. Found out my ABS does actually work lol.
I also have the Treadsetters. Not much for performance, but great in the snow.

The only problem with bonnies and other H Bodies is the clearance..sucks going thru 7" snow cause I am always getting high centered. I actually drove up a mountain here to check out the performance and had to be pulled out by my friends jeep, only about 8" of snow...

I agree . The Bonneville does quite well, but if its snowing really bad, I'll take the GP out. Its one of the best cars I've driven in the white stuff .

In my 93 SSEi, the only thing I hated about winter was when it would be snowing hard and the snow build up underneath the wipers would cause the wipers not to go all the way down to the wiper rest.

We had a light dusting last week here in northern indiana and took the bonneville out for some errands and wasn't very happy with it, so i parked it and got the blazer out for the rest of the day. Tread life on the tires is still pretty good but i need to rotate them before it gets to bad outside.

Comparing a car to a 4WD vehicle is totally different. I know where your coming from, but gotta remember what vehicle class your dealing with. For a vehicle its allright, for a car the Bonne is quite well.
