Point taken. I used getting stuck for an example, obviously I am commuting with the summer tires on and my objective is not just to "plow snow" and hope to not get stuck. I do a lot of highway driving and commute to work on poorly plowed back roads as well. Considering a person like myself who leaves enough time to get somewhere in the winter, I just slow down and that eliminates most of the problem. I'm not saying they wouldn't be extremely helpful, but I have never had any problems stopping, turning, etc. in over 3 years. But that is just me.
