The only thing hopeless is someone who lives in Colorado and yet doesn't
put snow tires on their car!
Seriously, if you put 4 (four, not two, four) high-quality snow tires
on your M3, and perhaps 2 50lb bags of cat litter or sand in the trunk,
you will drive circles around nearly any SUV you can find. I have
gotten extreme pleasure out of passing stuck 4wd vehicles on inclines
in various old and new 2wd BMW's when using high-quality snowtires.
There are many excellent snow tires, buy my favorites are Nokia
Hakkepellitas. Why would you buy snow tires from any company whose test
track wasn't above the artic circle?
