Allthough the wife has been giulty of the occasional "light to light runs" but not when the streets are wet. She deff loves the suprise factor with the Jeep.
She will be fine ( Im in vancouver and use this rig as my DD ) - I park it once the snow rolls in though. - without dedicated snows it gets a bit intereting on rubber this wide. She will still be able to pull through 6-8 inches. It will just be quite slick and slow going.
As for the rain, I only really notice it on corners form a stop (turning at a red light ect) - I will get some wheel slip while traction control is on.
Also if you punch it in first or second she will spin like a mother... I find myself sideways without much effort in the rain.. but i suppose that's partly my fault
Blessing is that these rigs are pretty user friendly and forgiving. even if you get sideways its easily righted.
