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.
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.

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
Apologies for the quick editing.
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.

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
