Thisnis great, but not at all helpful for those of us a bit further south. I use summer and all seasons because we rarely see snow/ice, and my summer tires don't do well at 35F. Would be nice to see a hot vs cold comparison of the two.

Great for people who have never gotten this information... I'm just thinking about how nice the m3 looks in that green... and also with a reasonable grille lol sorry.

Oh yeah... season appropriate tires is pretty obvious.. who would wear galoshes to run a marathon?? or flip flops to climb a snowy peak?? Same idea... ish

Summer tires are good in summer.
Winter tires in winter.

All Season suck all the time!

After running winter tires for some years now, there's no question as to the advantages of using winter tires during the cold/snow/ice season. The various videos which show the advantages of winter tires are good but.... Someone did point out and you do see it in the comments section of the various videos, why don't these videos call out the exact tires they're using?

This is the only video I've found where they call out the exact tires they're using for the comparison:

Fake news. You do realize there is four seasons and not just two, right?

People should take note that these propaganda videos are made by organizations motivated to sell you tires.

I need to agree with this. I live in NH and our summers aren't long enough to make summer tires worthwhile. Some people run winters all year, but that's taking it too far. Most have all seasons, and unfortunately it's the best choice.

Due to lack of care and all the apprentices that are actually installing your wheels in the car, the smudges and indifference in every dealership I have been through, I decided that my cars are running on All-Weather tires.
I don't switch, I don't have wheels scratched by an idiot, I don't store, I don't carry two wheels in the trunk and other two in the back seats compromising the leather or its fine shape.

I am running fast and sporty and never had an issue. And where I live, summer is short, too much hassle for nothing. The summer toy has the summers, but my DD is an All-Weather.

Yeah, a vehicle with dedicated tires is nice, but it comes with pain if you don't do it yourself (and I don't).

So, I am running super fast in the summer with all-seasons and doing just fine, leaving behind a lot of cars with proper tires. I love the all weather.

Tires won't suffice anyway: It's about the driver too....
