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).

Tire Rack - Winter Testing at the Arctic Circle: Studdable Winter/Snow
Once again from Northern Sweden, home to a number of great winter test
sites and plenty of snow and ice, we tested a tires ability to accelerate,
brake and drive through the Arctic snow and on ice.
This round included several Studdable Winter / Snow tires, each featuring
deep treads molded in aggressive patterns designed to dig their way through
the snow while including molded-in holes to insert optional metal studs for
enhanced ice traction. We compared the General Altimax Arctic (both
unstudded and studded) along with unstudded Firestone Winterforce and
Pirelli Winter Carving Edge tires.

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
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.
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.
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

Tire Rack Tire Test - Sooner or Later You'll Own Generals - Maybe Now is the Time
If you ask people about General tires, many will remember the decades-old
slogan "sooner or later you'll own Generals." General recently introduced
the Grabber HTS as the newest member of the Grabber family of SUV and
pick-up/light truck tires, focusing on all-season traction and ride quality
for drivers who never need to venture off paved roads and highways. To gain
a better understanding of how well the new General Grabber HTS fits with
today's SUVs, we did some comparing. Maybe now is the time.
