A huge number of new cars are being sold today with the standard or optional all-wheel drive system. Consumers have identified for years the AWD system with safety on any road conditions and often proper tires are being omitted.
Also, majority of the cars sold as new come equipped with all-season tires, a compromise that in many cases are not ideal for summer nor winter.
To prove that proper tires are more important, in some cases, than all-wheel drive systems, the folks over at Tyre Reviews took a BMW M3 and a Subaru Forrester in the snow.
The M3 runs on Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 UHP winter tires, and the Subaru Forester 2.5XT PPP is on Bridgestone Potenza RE070 UH.
And one more video of a BMW 3 Series running first on all-seasons and then on winter tires:
