Pete, refer to post #8. Over the top performance and handling in Lexus RX300 with AWD and A/S tires in Chicago snow. The adhesion threshold is so far above normal driving that inclement weather or snow storm is never a concern. The A/S tires is more then sufficient for most AWD vehicles. I get the benefit of softer/smoother A/S tires over the intrusive whining road roar of stiff winter tires during the winter season. Speaking from experience, it works for me. A/S in the winter and summer in summer.
