I don't know about all areas, but around here they pre-treat the roads with liquid calcium chloride before the snow arrives then when the snow hits they use a salt/chat mixture for melting and traction and this combo is pure hell on a vehicle I always keep an old beater explorer or pickup and to me it's well worth it you don't have to worry about rust, accidents, aluminum wheel pitting,chipped paint, cracked windshields etc. if it were me I'd leave the stang parked and get a beater or in your case, in a metro area , maybe ride the bus...besides five years down the road your car will look much better and probably have a better resale value....just my 2 cents worth
