A quick video demonstration of why NOT to drive on snow/ice with summer tires. Tires are Michelin PS2's getting close to the wear bars, still extremely good grip on dry roads. Even with AWD and excellent brakes, can't accelerate or stop as the video shows. I'm glad I didn't try to take it up/down the hill in my other videos, that would have been a disaster resulting in body work/paint for sure..
Winter Tyres v Summer Tyres: the Truth! - Auto Express
Fore more videos visit: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/videos/
British motorists tend to run summer tyres on their cars all year round,
regardless of the weather. However, as our exclusive comparison test shows,
this can be very dangerous.
We headed to Sweden to compare the performance of summer tyres with winter
tyres on snow and the results were quite shocking.

BMW M3 / RWD vs other cars in a snow race - Winter tyre vs summer tyres
Update: The M3 VS a 4x4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STaximkaQxo
Perhaps one of the worst cars on snow, an automatic (SMG) BMW M3 with
255/35 R19 rear tyres in a "race" against various other vehicles.
The first one to the top of the small, snow covered incline wins. Traction
control turned off in the M3 and always started in 1st gear. Oh, and the M3
has Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 UHP winter tyres.
In order of "race" appearance:
1) M3 vs BMW 118d Manual. Drive wheels are new 245/35 R18 Nankang NS20
2) M3 vs Ford KA. Drive wheels are 165/35 R13 budget summer tyres
3) M3 vs BMW 118d with extra weight over the rear wheels
4) M3 vs VW Passat Manual with an extra runup. Drive wheels are new 205/55
R16 Dunlop SP Sport summer tyres

Tire Rack Tire Test - Winter/Snow vs. All-Season vs. Summer Tires on Ice
First we compared all-season and winter/snow tire performance on our snowy
test track. Now watch as Tire Rack compares the difference between
winter/snow tires, all-season tires and summer tires by evaluating
acceleration, stopping and cornering capabilities — this time using an
ice rink as our test track.
How to stretch a tire... and how you don't.
First time we had to use fire to make a tire stretch out.
Stretching 195/45R15s on 9Jx15 BBS RMs.
Didn't work at first, but we got there!
As more and more people cry about handling and whatever when it comes to
These wheels will be going on a stanced out 1986 Scirocco 16V weekend
It's meant to look good in the first place, handling just comes second.
Stretching tires that much will make the handling in fast corners
worse...normal driving you won't notice any difference though.
On my MKIII GTI, I run 195/40s on 9" wide rims for daily use and meetings,
while I run 215/35s on 9" wide rims for track use (see my onboard videos on
215s will just stretch slightly on 9", stiffening the sidewall up only a
little, giving you a more direct steering, while still allowing fast
In combination with harder rubber bushings, more stiff suspension setup and
unbiall top mounts, etc.etc. this results in an almost GoKart like, very
direct handling...sure not the fastest setup, but fast and fun enough for

vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features. Throughout the
video, I will highlight key styling and unique differences about the
vehicle, any available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast
car video without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

BMW E92 M3 snow driving with Dunlop SP Wintersport 3D tires
First drive in the snow with my M3. Tires are Dunlop SP Wintersport 3D on
a generic 18 inch wheel, 235mm square setup all around. Dry handling
leaves a bit to be desired naturally, but in the white stuff, it performs
quite well. I had to cut the video short since the Lexus in front of me
was driving entirely too slow....for my taste. Prior car was a Honda S2000
w/Blizzak WS60 tires. They appeared to be better snow tires in my opinion,
but I will need a few more drives in the M3 to determine for sure.
