As far as safety, AWD is a great safety feature in the snow, rain or any type of slippery consition.
Tirerack article proves you wrong. Its pretty much tirerack test results vs you.....a wise person would most likely trust tirerack and common knowledge
I bet many stupid people drive for 20 years and on 21st kill someone because AS tires are junk and they couldn't stop in emergency situation.
