99 V6 Ford Mustang.....Winter?

I have 1999 Ford Mustang. I had trouble last winter with it because I didn't have good tires for snow...Was to poor lol OK well now I know winter is coming fast. How much difference would snow tires on the back make? I'm getting better tires on friday.

I live in New York so I know how it is, my first winter was a terrible experience driving this car but now I know what to do...I take the subways lol, I heard from many people that the best thing to do is to add a few sacks of sand to add weight to the car, also American Muscle sells a piece that kills the posi traction and your stang will have more traction in your rear wheels, I don't recall the name of this piece. Like I said before try to stay away from the snow, driving on the snow with a mustang needs some serious skills and patience (and for the rest of the drivers too lol). You can get some good grip with snow tires but if you have to drive on a frozen road or sleet nothing is going to help you too much. Good luck !

When I had my 06 pony package I got caught in the snow a few times. she had traction control (my 09 doesn't)

anyway my '06 was lowered and had the OEM tires on her 235-55-17. I took my time driving one winter night I got caught in a snow storm. It took me 1.5 hrs to drive 30 miles witch would take me 45 mins to drive on a good day.

I would leave early (still do today) for work in the winter to make sure I was never late.

Just take your time drive senceable and you will be fine just my .02

I know that winter is coming April 24th, but that only affects my Sunday night TV viewing.

Where do you live that your thinking of purchasing Winter Tires in April????
