People like four wheel drive because it gives better acceleration. Unfortunately, many misplace confidence and think that their X-drive is superior in all other aspects when it's not. Too many people here in Colorado drive their SUVs and X-drives with 4-season tires because of their misguided and misplaced confidence in four wheel drive, right before they ram the concrete median or plow into a Canadian M3 stopped at a light. Four wheel drive cars benefit from winter tires just as much as rear drive cars.
....Canadian M3 ?
You wanna clarify this Grandpa?
