BMW M3 Snow Race: Winter Tire Demonstration [Video]
The clip shows a BMW M3 E46 SMG wearing winter tires racing a few other cars up a snow-covered hill. The automated manual M3 uses Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 UHP winter tyres, while the rest of the vehicles come with summer shoes
First up, we see the M3 going up against another BMW, an 118d manual with 245/35 R18 Nankang NS20 summer tyres. Next, the coupe battles a Ford Ka in 165/35 R13 budget summer tyres.
Subsequently, the 1-Series gets another chance, this time with extra weight on the rear axle - two people in the trunk. In the end, we see the M3 battling a VW Passat manual using 205/55 R16 Dunlop SP Sport summer tyres. You can see the outcome of each battle in the footage above.
