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

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.

It is not my car and I'm not driving it in this video. Nothing bad happened
to the car and this video was made just before the restoration process of
the car began. The goal of the owner is to restore it to showroom
HF Tire Changer
This is longer than I wanted it to be. They say the devil's in the
details, so for someone who's never used a manual tire changer, this may be
helpful. My comments about not caring about the tires is because I put
them on a vehicle that got driven straight to the scrapyard, not sold to
another party. :)
The first few seconds show quick snapshots of the process so you can see if
it's has the info you're looking for.

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.
