anyways, does anyone go through the winter with their stock wheels/tires? is it terrible?

I know someone with a land rover lr4 that they aren't using and i could take that, but i don't want to be making two car payments if i don't absolutely need to.

edit: I also have msport so my car has LSD - if that makes a difference
I see a few BMW spinning tires at green lights during every Boston winter, I can tell they dont have snow tires. If you have RWD, get snow tires or get a AWD. Snow tires will help you stop shorter and the AWD will help with accelaration in the slippery stuff. AWD with snow is the best of both worlds.
