Slip & Sliding in my GLE63S

live in Canada, gets to -30C, snow and ice is obvious. Have pirelli scorpion ice 21 tires on, still fish tailing and slipping and still have difficulties turning without spinning out!!! Tried placing sand bags in my trunk, reduced a bit and yes I do drive in slippery mode.

Any SUGGESTIONS Gents???

Slow down - leadfootitis still? LOL

Just a guess here but a dedicated set of 20" rims and 265/40/20 Snow tires might help.

I believe so. For snow tires - narrower width with more side wall should help.
