By the way, I did hit the entrance ramp pretty hard on the way home Friday. I was following a Suburu with the hot turbo motor. I was surprised that he could go faster on the ramp than me. I do not know if it was my summer tires or if the hot Subie is just pretty good in the turns. But stability control did not kick on and I was moving along nicely. The temperature was not that low, maybe 50.

When it is close to freezing or below I drive significantly more cautiously regardless of the vehicle or its tires. I am not worried about the compound of my tires, I am worried about ice.
