Summer tires in snow
This is how bad summer tires are in any kind of snow and slush. This isn't
just these specific tires, I've had other cars with summer tires that were
just as bad.
Snow Hill Challenge (2WD vs 4WD) (All Season vs Snow Tires)

RWD and winter tyres VS 4WD and summer tyres on snow
Continuing on from our last video, here's the only drive train we didn't go
up against - four wheel drive. Same idea, get to the top of the hill first,
but this time we uploaded the entire video, showing launches from both
sides of the street to avoid any suggestions of a "better side".
As before the M3 is on Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 UHP winter tyres, and the
Subaru Forester 2.5XT PPP is on Bridgestone Potenza RE070 UHP summer tyres.

Tire Rack - Winter Testing at the Arctic Circle: Studdable Winter/Snow
Once again from Northern Sweden, home to a number of great winter test
sites and plenty of snow and ice, we tested a tires ability to accelerate,
brake and drive through the Arctic snow and on ice.
This round included several Studdable Winter / Snow tires, each featuring
deep treads molded in aggressive patterns designed to dig their way through
the snow while including molded-in holes to insert optional metal studs for
enhanced ice traction. We compared the General Altimax Arctic (both
unstudded and studded) along with unstudded Firestone Winterforce and
Pirelli Winter Carving Edge tires.
