That has me thinking that even with good winter tires we'll still have some wheel slippage but only if we really try, but under any normal winter driving habits we should be in the clear. Personally I want that slippage but only intentional, when I really try. Need to get sideways with this sometimesHe kept the stelvio at around 3500-4000 when tackling the bends. I'm sure the tires plays a large part when it comes to winter traction, but so does the vehicle's drive dynamics, 4WD system and brakes. That's a lot faster than what I'm comfortable with on snow and ice.
