What about the front tires, are you able to find snows for them?
Take this for what its worth. I've driven some of the most god-awful snow packed roads from Rochester, NY to Niagara on the Lake, ON down the I-90 thruway for a period of ten years starting from 1999 to January 2010 with just all season tires with four different vehicles (1998 Nissan Frontier, 2002 VW Jetta VR6, 2000 Mazda MPV DX, 2008 Nissan Versa). I've never had any problem with slipping and sliding with any of the vehicles. Its mostly wet around here, the plows usually get out regularly to get the snow off the roads. I'll just wait and see how the car does, but more than likely I'll not be upgrading my tires to snows for Mitsubishi i.

Like Dylan...I went electric.
