Usually... non-pandemic times... our travels include sandy beaches here in NE FL and then snow in the Winter. M+S have worked so far, but I do carry two sets of cable "chains" for my AWD GMC Savana van. I carry other stuff, too, such as traction pads, but in the 34+ years that we've been going to SW CO for Christmas, I've never had a problem. My son got married in Ohio just north of Columbus in the middle January 2018 and we drove from NE FL there and back... just beating a Winter storm with heavy snow on the way in, and just beating another on the way South again. I did have a chance to play in decent snow with my AWD and practice recovering from some pretty wild skids and drifting in a large and empty parking lot... plowed, but lightly packed snow... great for my practice, though I did scare myself a time or two with almost 3 tons of van rapidly sliding sideways towards piled snow... great fun! I just don't understand why people don't all have AWD vehicles in snow climes. I would have a set of Winter tires on steel rims if I lived up North! I did in Germany and Maine.
