Audi S4 on snow with summer tires

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..

Tire Rack Tire Test - Winter/Snow vs. All-Season vs. Summer Tires on Ice
http://www.tirerack.com/a.jsp?a=HP5&url=/index.jsp 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.

500 hp Audi S4 quattro vs 12"+ of fresh snow! Unstoppable...
Last night we enjoyed a great winter storm, well over 12" (30 cm) at my house. I wanted to see if my lowered Audi S4 on Dunlop Wintersport 4D snow tires was up to the task going through such deep snow. A guest appearance is made by my 6 hp Subaru powered Ariens Snowblower (mostly unstoppable).
