Since these cars are pretty much 50/50 front to rear weight balanced I would not anticipate too much of a problem. Good tires are essential, but when I was really young, living in Michigan, we drove american cars that had most of the weight on the front tires and survived (albeit with snow tires). I run a 1988 750 and live in Virgina, not too much snow, but I have no problems in any road conditions (light foot in the winter).
