I have never tried X-street in winter but I am running SRL right now and it seems to work just fine. I dont know how the two compare though.

You probably will have to decide that one yourself....if you feel comfortable driving with it then use it, if you dont then detune a bit.

I usually switch to a tow tune in the winter, just because I wouldn't be going anywhere fast even if I wanted to and it's just a little easier to keep under control.

That being said, I've driven on snowy, icy roads with SRL, Xrace, Looney and a few others......... drive it with a litle common sense and you'll be fine.
