my best tip for driving on ice, if you care about your car, is you are going too fast unless everyone else is passing you. I am always the slowest driver in town on bad roads. i love my car way too much.
One last thing...stop about 50-100 feet before where you would normally stop so if you slide you have plenty of room to do it without hitting anything!
Im a safe winter driver!

Don't be too sure about that. That doesn't always work, espically if you're going downhill. I tried doing that this weekend, when I was in MD. Was going downhill and tried to stop on snow/ice. Kept sliding and whatnot. Brakes wouldn't work. So, only thing I could do was drag the driver-side front tire along the curb since I was in the left-hand lane. The friction against the curb brought the car to a stop, about 10 feet from the rearend of a Geo Tracker.

THATS HOW I WENT IT THE DITCH. I was coming down a hill to a traffic light and put on my brakes waaaaaaay before the intersection. But my car just slowly rolled through the light and into a ditch.

actually ill take no ABS over ABS since in snow you can stop fastest by locking the brakes and piling up snow in front of your tires. On ice ABS or not nothing helps. ABS just means you wont SLIDE when stopping so if you suck at driving its easier to stop but takes longer.

Many reasons..
1. tires usually are horrible on snow
2. Potholes can scratch them alot
3. Salt/ice everything will scratch them
4. Curbs are hidden, you'll kill the rims
5. Steelies also protect your brakes and everything else alot more from ice and other bad elements!!!
etc.

2 weeks ago it snowed 1.5 inches in Raleigh, NC. The DOT never saw it coming. It took me 6 hours to go 4 miles. It's not that I don't know how to drive in snow/ice (I'm originally from New Jersey) but there were so many cars on the road at the same time. It was horrible, school busses were on the roads, still trying to drop of kids until 11:30PM that night. It took some 12+ hours to get from downtown Raleigh to other parts of the city. Here's a weblog of people who were stuck in traffic that day: http://www.wral.com/news/4108873/detail.html
