I concur. An awd car demands good winter traction so at the very least get suitable All Terrain tires. The are every bit as good (depending upon brand) as some of the very best snow tires in snow but will give up something on ice. Yet, they are still better as a group then all seasons on ice. I successfully used them on SUVs and trucks for years. What do you give up ? More noise on pavement and some possible dry traction. You can’t have it all, but these are as good as you are going to get for a decent do everything 4wd tire. Research the brands, look at reviews and pick out the ones best suited to your needs. But, AT tires as a group is where I would start. BTW, a Compass is ill suited for very strenuous off roading so maximum off road traction is not a big consideration. Good snow traction on roads is.
