okay, whatever, just dont try and flag me down to pull you out of a
snow bank when you slide off the road with you GOOD snow tires.. its
just a ridiculous arguement. All this thread is showing is who has
actually driven a 4wd and who hasnt.. note-- I never said anything
about front wheel drive. I mentioned ALL WHEEL DRIVE (AWD) and FOUR
WHEEL DRIVE (4wd) both of which will out perform your snow tires every
day, Like I said at the top, unless you are driving a escalade on
"dubs" with slicks on them.
Im not sure that you guys have a whole lot of experience driving in
snow or you would concede what Im talking about, you going up hill is
about momentum or condition, your stopping is about condition as well,
you have to have a surface that will provide friction to stop, any
compound of tires and ice will not produce a stop.
-as a side note, Im curious as to how you get a fwd to spin a 360
without serious effort-- the physics are totally against it, maybe you
were mistakenly driving a rwd, which will easily spin a 360 because it
is "pushing" instead of "pulling" (like I state above)
Im not trying to trash on the bimmers ability here, I love brand and if
the roads are wet or dry I would rather drive them. But if you are on
ice and snow they just dont compete with awd or 4wd, no matter how much
you waste on tires.
