This was a tricky chase! I didn't know where to start... I heard this plow
extra was on its way to Brunswick on the scanner. When we got to Brunswick,
they said on the scanner they were going back west. That worried me a bit
because when I heard that, we were still on the Interstate and didn't know
if we'd make it in time. We made it to Grant Road with a few minutes to
spare. After Grant Road, it got a bit harder becasue I am not too familiar
with the Brunswick/Freeport area. The traffic was slow through there which
made it harder to keep up, too. We caught up to it again at Mill Road and
had seconds to spare! After that, we went to Intervale Road where we met
the Empty Oil Train.
*Note: Mill Road was shaky becasue we made it as soon as the crossing
At Intervale Road, the Empty Oil Train took the mainline and passed the
snow plow that was on the siding. The plow came through after the oil train
The second location is Mill Road in North Yarmouth, ME and the third is
Intervale Road in New Gloucester, ME.
*Thank you to my dad for driving me around and helping take some video
while I took photos. He took the video at Mill Road and Intervale Road
(Locations at 0:50 & 1:20 in the video) while I took pictures
Saffron Walden to Ashdon in the snow
driving my rear wheel drive Lexus IS200 from Saffron Walden to Ashdon,
camera is a FujiFilm S2000HD hooked up to the rear central headrest with a
GorillaPod SLR. tyres fitted are Nokian WR, great traction.
Journey from Ashdon was a little more entertaining as there was more snow
but I had quite alot of waiting for slower cars, near the start there is a
BMW parked at the bottom of a hill, this got stuck on the most shallow
Ok, I wasnt the fastest driver but I was controlled, safe & got to my
destinations, I know there are many of you that could do a better job, all
I can say is Meh!
Winter tyres, well worth the purchase!
Winter Snow Tires vs All-Season Tires vs Summer Tires testing on Ice
Do you really need Winter Tires? Watch as Tire Rack compares the
difference between winter/snow tires, all-season tires and summer tires by
evaluating acceleration, stopping and cornering capabilities using an ice
rink as their test track.

Sailun Tires - Winter vs All-Season Tires
http://www.sailuntires.ca Don't need winter tires? Think again. Watch as
Sailun Ice Blazers vs All-Season Tires demonstrate how much safer it is to
have a set of winter tires on your vehicle!
North American winters can present highly challenging driving conditions.
That is why drivers should always consider purchasing a dedicated set of
winter tires to maximize the handling capabilities of their vehicle. To
demonstrate, this video was created to highlight the differences winter
tires can make in simulated winter driving conditions. As you'll see,
through braking, acceleration and cornering exercises, winter tires provide
much improved handling, acceleration, and maneuverability in snow and ice.
Note about winter tires:
Performance of all-season tires drops dramatically in temperatures below 7
degrees centigrade. At these temperatures, the rubber compound will begin
to harden, losing its griping ability in the process. On the other hand,
winter tires are made with rubber compounds that remain soft and flexible
in temperatures below 7 degrees centigrade. This helps the tire maintain
its grip on snow, ice and even paved surfaces. Compared to an all-season
tire, a winter tire also has a deeper and more aggressive tread pattern
that improves traction in slush and snow.
Landrover discovery stuck in snow
this is a tail of a land rover getting stuck and i pull him out in my
modified rubicon, this was the first of many epic stucks in the land rover
an amazingly capable rig for what poor and little tires were on it, quite a
few times my jeep was the only thing that could get recover him
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.

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.

Two BMWs, two different tyres and lots of snow - we test the effectiveness
of winter tyres. More videos at
RWD and winter tyres VS 4WD and summer tyres on snow
Continuing on from our last video, here's the only drive train we didn't go
up against - four wheel drive. Same idea, get to the top of the hill first,
but this time we uploaded the entire video, showing launches from both
sides of the street to avoid any suggestions of a "better side".
As before the M3 is on Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 UHP winter tyres, and the
Subaru Forester 2.5XT PPP is on Bridgestone Potenza RE070 UHP summer tyres.
Winter Tyres v Summer Tyres: the Truth! - Auto Express

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.
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).
