What if my vehicle is front-wheel drive?

Front wheel drive is certainly an advantage, but its advantage can be multiplied by using winter tires designed for the road conditions you’ll encounter. Part of a front wheel drive vehicle’s acceleration advantage is because it has 60% of its weight over the drive wheels. And while this helps you get started, it does nothing to help you stop. And a front wheel drive vehicle’s weight distribution is not the best for handling and cornering. Many of the reasons that encouraged you to select a front wheel drive vehicle are the same reasons that dedicated winter tires will make your winter driving more enjoyable and enhance your car’s braking, handling, and cornering traits.
