Yes to both! I live in snow country and we have 3 front drive vehicles. Put two sand bags in the back and get some winter tires. We run studs on everything. drive in all types of conditions and they work the best. If your state doesn't like studs, at least get some good snow tires. you will be amazed at the difference.

Go with a set of graspics or blizzaks and go with care
