If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, today is the shortest day of 2010. Plenty of time for night driving in the snow! If not your thing, don't worry: at 67,000 mph, Earth will soon rocket back to summertime.

Until then, it’s high time to score a snow-tired Evo, find a stretch of lightly used road, and see what modern sticky rubber can do in snowy corners.

Hint: quite a lot.
