Are 2 winter Tires enough
Although it seems logical & economical to fit M+S Tires on the drive wheels & keep the summer Tires on the free-running wheels, this approach does involve some very real risks. When braking the weight is transferred to the front wheels. Vehicles with rear wheel drive would then be slowed down mainly via the summer Tires on the front, which provide little grip.
So more for front wheel drive cars?
Again, no, because the difference in traction & lateral guidance would soon make the vehicle unstable in bends. Complete safety can therefore only be ensured when winter Tires are fitted on all four wheel positions.
Fit your car with winter Tires all round!
...& remember - it's important to check the tread depth (at least 4mm) & Tire pressure (see vehicle manufacturer's specifications) regularly on winter Tires too!!!
