I use to think the skinniest tires were best in snow, so I put 165/80R15 tires on my 87 4wd Subaru. Well they were not really snow tires, and so what would happen in the snow, is the tires would pack the snow down, then slide off the sideways off the mound. Fatter tires wouldn't slide off sideways.

You need another 500 lbs in the car.

Sway bar has nothing to to with it.
