Default Just got winter tires for the WS6, how much will they help?

I picked up some Dunlop M3's for my car, (98 auto ws6 w/ 3.73's) in hopes that it will be useable for the winter, when in the past it wasn't at all w/ the summer tires. I plan on going to Vermont to ski maybe once a week, and was wondering if the car will be able to handle conditions like that with the winter tires. thanks.

This is my first winter with my car so I can't help you with knowing the limits. But I can suggest some "Sand in a tube" 70LBS bags in the hatch to weigh it down

Winter tires are a MUST on RWD cars. Havent' used the M3's but I've run Blizzaks and Firestone Winterforces on many vehicles and they're awesome. I put about 200lbs in my truck and I'm good to go.

I've read good things about the M3s, one of them being that they are V rated

I bet they will help immensely.
