4WD VS Winter Tyres - Do you need winter tyres if you have 4WD?

As requested in comments I will be doing all season vs winter tyres AND 4wd vs 2wd on the same tyres so make sure you subscribe! http://bit.ly/2p6kKXq I've lost track the amount of times I've read "you don't need winter tyres if you have four wheel drive", so I thought I'd do the test. Two BMW X1 vehicles, one is front wheel drive (FWD) with winter tyres, and one of four wheel drive (4WD / 4x4 / AWD) with summer tyres fitted. The winter tyre 2wd vehicle has Goodyear Ultragrip Performance Gen-1 and the summer tyre 4wd has the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3. Both tyres are in the same size and load rating (225/50 R17) and have the same tyre pressures. The tests in the video include acceleration and braking on snow, snow handling, snow hill climb, snow braking on a hill, and obstacle avoidance. Which combination of drive train and tyres was best? You'll have to watch the video :) Note, I know I use 4x4 and AWD interchangeably in the video. The BMW X1 is AWD, but you would have a similar result with FWD. Winter tyres are sometimes called snow tyres. --- Further information on the tyres talked about in this video can be found on the Tyre Reviews website http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk --- Instagram - http://instagram.com/Tyre_Reviews Facebook - http://facebook.com/TyreReviews --- The music in the video is by the excellent Lakey Inspired, go follow his soundcloud! lakey inspired - holding on - https://soundcloud.com/lakeyinspired/holding-on lakey inspired - me 2 - https://soundcloud.com/lakeyinspired/me-2-feat-julian-avila

What's inside a Tesla Tire?

We CUT OPEN the Tire of a Tesla Model X and it was ACTUALLY INTERESTING! Buying a Tesla? USE OUR CODE: http://ts.la/daniel3063 Was super surprised to learn about the inside of the Tesla tire and grateful I found a Tire Shop that could help me fix this issue. Hopefully this video helps shops that don't know how to fix Tesla flats be confident moving forward. Not everyone can get service done at the Tesla Service station.
