The AWD X1 had summer tires, not all-seasons!
Who in their right mind would drive around with summer tires in snow?

Yeah summer tires in winter are insane. Results with all-seasons are obviously better but not nearly as bad.

I'm still in the group of "Buy winter tires". It's cheaper than funeral costs.

Definitely winter tires all around, regardless of drivetrain.

Don't need to test that because people are just in denial about the truth and want to argue for 2wd cars

But the guy at CT told me RE70 offers the best grip.
