Have you seen Turner and Hooch? My Envoy and the Tahoe my buddy had will stay in 4WD even if the vehicle is limping on 3 cylinders...clawing for life..lol. I know, this isn't AWD but 4WD, even though it has Auto 4WD....it always works. I generally have Blizzaks on our vehicles and these tires work very, very well on hard packed snow and ice. Ice is still ice, but they have a little bite on the ice. The whole point of this, is to make aware that the condition exists.
