With RWD, it isn't so bad. You can put winters on the rear and have good traction, steering may be a little light but you can compensate for it. On a FWD car, however, putting them just on the front wheels will have you doing 360 degree spins! Putting them just on the rear is silly so if you're getting winters on a MINI, get 4!
If your fronts are bald, you may find just putting them on the back is similarly bad, you may find it VERY tail-happy. Some may like that...
MINI Cooper Cabrio: now the car with go cart handling really feels like an open go cart!
