I try to keep telling everyone I know how bad all seasons are during the winter time. Hopefully when I show them this they realize what I've been telling them. Thanks for posting this.

Some people need to see it for themselves first before they believe. I for one have been perfectly fine using all-seasons in the winter time. But after seeing the side by side comparison I don't think I want to risk that one time where don't perform to my expectations.

In the first film at about 1:08, in the braking comparison test, notice how the wheels are rolling in the losing car but the wheels are stopped in the winner.

This test was as phony as a $3 bill.

I watched the video again and both wheels are rolling. They have different wheel designs so you might have mistaken that for the wheels being stopped. This test wasn't phony as I personally tried out my all-seasons versus a set of winters on my car. I borrowed a set of winter tires from my friend to do the test and needless to say the difference was night and day.

regardless time over time, all season tires are garbage.

They don't hold up well during winter time at all. regardless winter tires will always be best during winter, if you want to drive on all season be my guest, but don't blame me if you rear end someone.

Many consumers don't know enough about tires to make an educated purchase. For some, the choice comes down to price and/or availability. Others buy tires based on appearance or reputation. Educated consumers know to purchase tires based on safety, quietness, road-holding ability, and wear. Winter driving is a challenge. Should you tackle the day with all-season or snow tires? Popular Mechanics uncovers the safer truth. Source of article: Deciding on winter versus all-season tires. That's too bad, because choosing the right tire can be the difference between and a near miss and an accident. Getting the right tire for a vehicle starts with finding a knowledgeable dealer. One who can help you select the tire best for the intended use. Tire retailers should also point out the pros and cons of each brand.
