S63 AMG in snow?

I ran my S600 on 4 V rated snows here in CT last winter and it was "OK" (downsized to 245s)
granted we didn't have a lot of snow last season (thankfully), but I had it out in a couple 4"-6" storms and it was decent
starting off on an incline is the biggest challenge but once under way it was very stable and sure footed
I say "OK" being in relative terms - I came out of 3 quattros previous... with snows 8-)
but I've run all my MB's prior to this w/ 4 snows and did fine

I put Pirelli Sottozero on my stock (staggered) rims,same size as original Summer tires.
First Winter was easy,this one was sometimes difficult because these tires wore off very quickly in the mild weather we had this time in Chicago.
It's my daily driver (done 20k miles since December 2010) and I never got stuck.

I have a S65 in Chicago, as long as you don't mash either pedal, you'll be fine.
