Default Re: 4x4 - is it really needed?

You indicated Porsche and BMW required Winter tires during certain months and you quote the BMW manual discussing the M&S tires that came on the vehicles during the winter months. The recent content of the thread was about snow tires. It is important to know that all season M&S tires are nowhere near snow tire performance. Sorry if I took your comments out of context, but I was just stating facts.

No, I didn't say that Porsche and BMW required them. I said that they may be required. The laws of certain European countries require them during certain periods of winter.

No, I said that information was from BMW's European Delivery web site, and I provided a link to it.

No, I didn't say that M&S tires came on the vehicles during winter months. I said that they offered to set us up with winter tires for us to use while we were there.

The Porsche and the BMW both came with high-performance non-runflat Summer tires. We sure didn't want to use snow tires to lap the Nurburgring Nordschleife at triple-digit speeds.

The thread is about whether four wheel drive is needed.

I am very much up to speed on tires.

No apology necessary. We're good.

Um...okay...
