Blizzaks on all 4 corners and it's good to go. Handles nice with good traction, never been stuck or too out of control. Just watch your right foot as it doesn't take much to break loose, even on dry pavement at 50mph.
Ask me how I know.

Not a SRT8....but in the same ballpark. Been driving mine for my fifth winter and she is amazing even without snow tires!!

I don't have the SRT model but I love driving my Charger in the snow. If your doing regular driving the anti slip nanny function works beautifully around corners. Loosens up the rear end a bit. It's a great rear wheel drive vehicle to drive in the winter. If you turn off ESP and have some fun......it's a blast. The long wheel base works beautifully around corners and down the road. I also have a Jeep Cherokee and the short wheel base on the Jeep limits the fun a bit. I love sliding around the roads with my Charger.

I was wondering the same thing about snow. My Magnum R/T was horrible in the snow -completely undriveable. I have a 1/3 mile commute to work and no 2nd car (only my 2012 superbee). I may opt to walk to work in the sonw.

I had no issues with mine in the snow, and I didn't even have snow tires. Drive carefully and remember that 1) ESP is your friend and 2) that you've got a lot of HP so you have to be easy on the throttle. If you can, get winter tires though.

I drove mine through a 30 inch snowstorm a couple seasons back

Had Conti Extreme Contact all seasons

No problems

To be safe, I would go with 4 Blizzaks next time

Cars are good in the snow as long as you have the proper tires on them

It wasn't your Magnum, it was the tires you had on there
