I've had this exact conversation with my girlfriend.
Till I put new tires on her car, driving her car was "fun". All it would do was spin the tires when you were at any type of incline and slide when you touched the brakes.
I got sick of sliding and getting frustrated with the car and bought new tires for her.

One time when the car started to slide she hammered on the brakes with both feet and pulled her hands off the steering wheel freaking out. We luckily only hit a snowbank but I asked her why she locked up the brakes and why on god's green earth she would take her hands of the wheel in a skid

To avoid breaking her wrists when the steering wheel snapped back when she hit something.

Her hands came off as the car began to skid so she had no way to regain control of the car while she was sliding.
