    When we had our old 55 plate Kia Sorento we had no problems in snow. Mind it had PERMANENT 4×4 and the killer option of changing into low ratio. Made all the difference when everyone else was slipping around.

    Not arguing, just saying: This winter both my Impreza and Forester were on summer tires. Never got stuck, not once. In fact I helped several people tow their cars up a hill on my way back from work.

    Interesting video. I run a banger on budget tyres and during the snow 2018 managed to extricate myself from a snow infested retail park but had to sit and watch some numpty in his awd Kuga next to me make a right fool of himself. He was going back and forth spinning up and you saw the look of frustration. Man i wish id been running some winters at the front to really rub his nose in it. I could have driven straight off…..

    Awd and 4×4 is a very different thing, a kuga is awd.

    Embrace the power of AND. Winter tires AND AWD/4×4. These OR comparisons purposely omit the best of 3 options:

    1. AWD/4×4 with all season tires.
    2. FWD/RWD with winter tires.

    But they almost never mention this one:

    3. AWD/4×4 with winter tires.

    Why is that?

    For most drivers, the considerable extra expense (purchase and maintenance) of a 4×4 or AWD car is a total waste of money. You're much better off buying a set of wheels shod with winter tyres and storing them in the garage. If you've ever driven a FWD or RWD car in the snow with winter tyres you'll know how amazingly well they grip on the snow.

    FWD possibly could have made it if you turned traction control off when you got stuck. You should always try that at low speeds stuck in snow. Or use snow mode if your car has it.

    Meanwhile, I go up the hill on a snowmobile 😋 Joking. I do want to see an All Season tire comparison too.

    Do rwd with winter tires vs 4×4 with all season.

    I know this is an old video and probably been commented on many times but, why summer tires? Should have been standard all seasons vs winter.
