So, here in North Carolina winter is usually wet and cold, with occasional snow or ice. Not real summer-tire-only friendly for those couple nasty months. In fact - been raining for almost 3 days on and off. Last weekend I brought my 2012 AWD Taurus back from our mountain cabin. I have made the decision to take the 2016 Mustang out only on dry days and use the Taurus in the nasty weather. Not thrilled parking the Taurus outside and maneuvering around it in the driveway w/ the family Flex. BUT - sure beats trashing the Mustang in this weather. I can leave Eleanor safely tucked up in her garage bay now.
