So Im from Buffalo, New York and once winter comes around i have all these urges to mod my Altima but i feel like the winter holds me back. (which may be a good thing sometimes haha), but i just can't help it. Since i don't have many major mods done yet before i start i wanted to know if there are any that may be ruined in the cold and snowy winters. Also any mods that are good for the winter months and are fairly easy to install. Thanks for your input in advance!

Yea I run all season tires in the winter months, we dont see too much snow here and when it does snow they have the streets cleared rather quikly so I dont really have to worry about driving through too much deep snow.
I find the altima handles good in the snow once it's moving. But I find it has more wheel spin then any other fwd I have owned. I am thinking it is because of the light weight CVT transmission up front.
My winter mods include this. Studded Tires, snow brush/scraper, extra blankets and survival kit, two bags of sand in trunk for weight. and a shovel.
I was at walmart the other day looking for some rubber floor mats to keep the carpets from getting soaked. And I found a set of mats that are rubber and have studs on the bottom side of the mat. So, when you are stuck on the ice you can put these mats under the tires for traction. Haven't tried them yet, but sounds good in theory!
I wish I had a remote start...

Good info here japedo. I just picked up some normal rubber floor mats lol. Those ones with the studs on the bottom sound awesome though. I've been stuck numerous times and other cars and I usually had to call for back up haha.
