Studding Your Own Tires--Bad Idea?
Uncertain of the age of the tires on my motorhome, I replaced them with new. The old ones still had a lot of good tread left, a fairly aggressive tread with lots of sipes, so I decided to put studs in them and make them my winter tires for my Bronco. I got a full two seasons out of them, and then this year one of them started to fail. So it was back to my Buckshot Raidal Mudders for the winter. Since I still had lots of studs left over, I decided to add some studs to the center lugs of the Buckshots. But that was before I realized that it may have been the studs that caused the damage to the old motorhome tire(s).





2013 Mazda3 vs Jeep Wrangler Snowstorm Winter Tire Mashup Test
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Mazda3 and the new Jeep Wrangler don't have a lot on common. In fact they are about as different as two cars can be. The Jeep Wrangler is an old school body on frame off-road behemoth while the Mazda3 is a perky small run about. So which one of these is better in the snow? We decided to find out in another fun and interesting TFLcar mashup test. To make it a fair contest we of course got a set of dedicated snow tires for the front-wheel-drive Mazda but kept the stock set of all season tires on the 4X4 Jeep. To make it even more fair we kept the jeep Wrangler in two-wheel-drive and headed to Lick Skillet Road (America's steepest country Road) in a snowstorm. So which of these two cars conquered the Colorado Mountain road? You'll have to watch this video to find out.

Mud-Terrain Tyres in Shallow Snow
This isn't my best video ever shot or my most interesting, but it's the best I managed on the day! :-) This shows how the mud-terrain tyres on my 300Tdi Land Rover Discovery cope in shallow (2-4 inches deep) snow. Given that a lot of it was quite compacted, there was no slipping or wheelspinning whatsoever - they performed flawlessly (as one would expect!).





Snow Hill Challenge (2WD vs 4WD) (All Season vs Snow Tires)
http://www.gofasthavefun.ca *Correction 2nd gear reduces torque applied and does not slow down rotation.* But why I was saying that is because from a start, a NON Slipping wheel making traction does spin slower than a wheel just spinning quickly right off the bat. You know what I mean, so just watch the stupid video. In this video we go over a variety of vehicles with different tire and traction device setups and see how they do on a snowy incline.

2 winter tyres vs 4 winter tyres
We did a test to see the difference of putting 2 winter tyres vs 4 winter tyres to a car. Find out what happens when you drive on ice in Sweden.Tyre advice between 2 winter tires or 4 winter tires from Rebecca Jackson. Renowned race car driver Rebecca Jackson did a few tests in the icy and snowy surfaces of norther Sweden with the purpose of finding out if two snow tires have enough traction as oppose to four snow tires. Snow or winter tires use more sipes and have a unique rubber compound, this helps increase the traction in the snow and ice. Snow tyres reduce grip in a dry and wet road. Snow tires manufacturers design their tires for tough winter weather usually between temperatures below 7 °C or 45 °F. In different parts of the world winter tyres have metal studs (studded tires) to have better grip in particular types of ice and snow. Snow tyres help skidding.

Winter Tyres v Summer Tyres: the Truth! - Auto Express
Fore more videos visit: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/videos/ British motorists tend to run summer tyres on their cars all year round, regardless of the weather. However, as our exclusive comparison test shows, this can be very dangerous. We headed to Sweden to compare the performance of summer tyres with winter tyres on snow ­ and the results were quite shocking.





All Season vs Winter Tires: Car Expert Lauren Fix
Courtesy of YNN/ Time Warner Cable Aired: 2/16/2012 Many of today's vehicles leave the factory with all-season tires. While all-season tires are intended to provide traction in a wide variety of weather conditions, they don't offer the best traction when you drive in snow or ice. Lauren Fix, the Car Coach, has a closer look. If you compare the difference between all-season tires and winter/snow tires by evaluating acceleration, stopping and cornering capabilities, you can tell there is a huge difference which will affect your safety on the road. So, who needs winter tires? If you drive in snow or on ice 2-3 times a year, then it makes sense to use a winter tire. The right tire changes everything. Many drivers think that that if their vehicle has 4WD (or AWD) that it delivers great traction and does not need winter tires. This is false. These systems do provide optimized traction over rear-wheel drive and front-wheel drive vehicles but provide minimal traction in diagonal handling and braking situations during snow and ice conditions. With winter tires, you can feel the difference. Winter tires afford your car improved levels of traction during all maneuvers, including acceleration, braking, and handling. The cost of winter tires is generally equivalent, if not less, than replacement tires on the vehicle. The goal is to optimize tire performance in treacherous driving conditions with the benefit of added safety. The perception that winter tires are not as durable as other tires is also false; the rubber is different, but comparable in durability. What should I look for in a winter tire? Tires marked with the mountain snowflake symbol meet or exceed industry requirements, and have been designed specifically for use in cold weather and severe snow conditions. Also look for a tire with a 40,000 mile warranty. Winter tires combine responsive handling with the ability to grip through snow and ice. Their rubber compounds remain flexible in cold temperatures while their tread designs bite through snow and ice, as well as maintain excellent wet and dry road traction. Winter driving...ice and snow...slipping and sliding...dings and dents. While today's ABS, traction control and stability systems maintain vehicle control, they are programmed to limit a vehicle's mobility to the traction available from its tires. With months of winter driving ahead, don't let all-season tires hold you back. Wouldn't you rather drive on winter/snow tires to help reduce travel times, tension and stress?
