All eight tires on my Phaeton are steer tires, unidirectional. I don't know enough about the different types of tires but that simply makes sense to me. If the snow is deep enough that I have to worry about traction I'm parking it.
Also should I have a flat on the front and an exact match tire is not available I'll move a tag to the front and use whatever is available on the tag to get me by for awhile. Actually I won't move it I'll have road side assistance do it.
