Lexus GS300 Snow Tyre Movie

After last winter slipping about I changed car tyres to four winter tyres. The transformation is unbelievable. Traction is excellent through snow, on ice and also heavy rain and slush. The car is a rear wheel drive Lexus GS300 The Tyres are Pirelli Sottozero Serie II.

Tire Rack - Winter Testing at the Arctic Circle: Studdable Winter/Snow
http://www.tirerack.com/a.jsp?a=HP5&url=/tires/tests/testDisplay.jsp&ttid=1 23 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.





Winter tyre test UK, Real world test of winter tires
A side by side comparison in real world conditions of winter tyres and summer tyres on rear and front wheel drive cars. Test conducted in December 2010 in Wales on untreated private road. Conclusions are that any winter tyres is better than no winter tyre, new winters are much better than worn ones, and a rear wheel drive car with good winters on is just as good as a front wheel drive one in the real world.

Tire Rack - Testing the Newest Studless Ice & Snow Winter Tires
http://www.tirerack.com/a.jsp?a=HP5&url=/tires/tests/testDisplay.jsp&ttid=1 67 Studless Ice & Snow tires work best when winter is at its worst. But there are plenty of miles driven on dry and wet roads, too. Most of the design elements that aid winter traction reduce clear road handling precision. Increased priority in one area leads to a trade-off in another. To find out what sort of handling and traction the newest and best deliver, the Tire Rack team hit the road...and the ice rink!





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.

How to stretch a tire... and how you don't.
First time we had to use fire to make a tire stretch out. Stretching 195/45R15s on 9Jx15 BBS RMs. Didn't work at first, but we got there! As more and more people cry about handling and whatever when it comes to stretched tires: These wheels will be going on a stanced out 1986 Scirocco 16V weekend cruiser. It's meant to look good in the first place, handling just comes second. Stretching tires that much will make the handling in fast corners worse...normal driving you won't notice any difference though. On my MKIII GTI, I run 195/40s on 9" wide rims for daily use and meetings, while I run 215/35s on 9" wide rims for track use (see my onboard videos on the Nürbrugring). 215s will just stretch slightly on 9", stiffening the sidewall up only a little, giving you a more direct steering, while still allowing fast cornering. In combination with harder rubber bushings, more stiff suspension setup and unbiall top mounts, etc.etc. this results in an almost GoKart like, very direct handling...sure not the fastest setup, but fast and fun enough for me.

The Cobra-Blown, Lexus V8 Swapped "No Style" '75 Corolla
Mark Still is a man of limited sports car experience, but is long on fabrication skill. So when he decided he wanted to build a hillclimbing monster, he started with what he was into: old Corollas. Now, his 1975 Coupe has the V8 and subframe from a Lexus SC400, an Eaton M112 Supercharger from a Mustang Cobra, a T56 6-speed gearbox, and everything else is completely custom. We love it.





2011 Lexus GS350 AWD Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, & Test Drive
Help us grow so we can bring you more videos! Like us on Facebook @ http://www.Facebook.com/2Redline Bridging the gap between the too-small Lexus IS and too-large Lexus LS, the Lexus GS offers an appealing blend of luxury, comfort, and space. Although an older design does lead to some dated technology interfaces, you can't deny this models incredibly plush ride, smooth-revving engine, and high-quality cabin. Just be sure you aren't the kind of driver that likes some sport with their luxury, as the GS is strictly just a luxury sedan here.





2014 Lexus GS 450h Hybrid Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF The GS used to be the only hybrid game in town, but times have changed and nearly everyone has joined the party. BMW has their turbocharged ActiveHybrid 5, Mercedes just launched the E400 Hybrid, Infiniti has re-badged their M Hybrid the Q70 Hybrid, Acura is finally selling the all-wheel-drive RLX Hybrid and Audi has announced the A6 hybrid will come to America "soon." This means that the S80 T6 and Genesis are no longer on my list because we have head-to-head competition now. Lexus used to be known for restrained styling but the current generation GS marked a change for the Japanese luxury brand. In addition to taking on more aggressive front end styling, the GS was the first Lexus to wear the new "spindle" grille. The schnozz that seemed so controversial three years ago seems downright demure today, especially since this form has been adapted to the enormous (and some say questionable) LX 470. Perhaps because the GS was the first to wear the corporate grille, the styling seems slightly awkward from the front 3/4 shot (seen at the top) but looks better in person. Unlike the IS, which gets some sheetmetal swooshes on the side, the GS's profile and rump are luxury car restrained. Overall I think the Infiniti Q70 hybrid, despite being a little long in the tooth, still wins the beauty contest. The Lexus and BMW are a bit too sedate for my tastes, and the RLX and A6 suffer from decidedly front-wheel-drive proportions when compared to the rest and the Mercedes lands smack in the middle. While the GS 350 recently got an update in the form of a new Aisin 8-speed automatic, the GS 450h continues with just a minor software update. This means under the hood you will find the same direct-injection 3.5L Atkinson-cycle V6 engine and RWD hybrid transmission that launched in 2011. Combined with a 1.9 kWh NiMH battery pack in the trunk the system is good for 338 combined horsepower, 286 of which come from the gasoline engine. This is essentially the same engine found in the Highlander and RX hybrids, but the transmission is more similar to what Lexus uses in the LS 600hL. The unit combines the two motor/generator units with a 2-speed planetary gearset to improve efficiency at high speeds (as in on the Autobahn) but without the AWD system standard in the LS 600hL. The 2014 software update improves "sportiness" in sport mode and now imitates an 8-speed automatic instead of a 6-speed. While 338 horsepower compares well with the 6-cylinder competition, the GS 450h has the unenviable task of trying to be both the most efficient GS and the performance version as well. For reasons nobody knows, the more efficient GS 300h which uses a 2.5L four-cylinder engine is not sold in America. By design, the Lexus hybrid system is very different from the competition. The two motor/generator units and the electrical circuitry combine with a single planetary gearsest to "act" as a continuously variable transmission. This setup allows the drivetrain to act as a serial hybrid (kind of), parallel hybrid, electric generator, or a pure EV at low speeds. In contrast Mercedes, BMW and Infiniti combine a traditional transmission with a single electric motor that replaces the torque converter. Transitions between electric and gasoline drive modes in these systems aren't as smooth as the Lexus system because of the clutch packs involved in reconnecting the engine. Meanwhile Acura combines a dual-clutch robotic manual transmission with a twin-motor pack in the rear for the only AWD hybrid luxury sedan in this category. Of course the primary reason for buying a hybrid is to save on gas. Right? Maybe. With a 29 MPG City, 34 MPG Highway and 31 MPG combined rating there's no doubt that the GS 450h is a fuel sipping 338 horsepower luxury sedan. However at more than $10,000 more expensive than a similarly equipped GS 350 it would take you more than 20 years to "save money." We did average an excellent 31.5 MPG over 800 miles with the GS hybrid, a notable improvement over the Infiniti hybrid and the short time I spent in the RLX hybrid. Although we haven't extensively tested the BMW and Mercedes hybrids yet, brief spins in both indicate they will slot in under the GS. There's one more problem for the GS: Mercedes' new E250 diesel. No, it's not a speed daemon, but at 34 mpg combined it not only makes up for the higher cost of diesel with the higher fuel economy, it starts around $9,000 less than a GS 450h as well.





Tire Rack - Winter Testing at the Arctic Circle: Studless Ice & Snow Tires
http://www.tirerack.com/a.jsp?a=HP5&url=/tires/tests/testDisplay.jsp&ttid=1 22 During the height of the winter season in Northern Sweden in late January of 2009, we compared three Studless Ice and Snow winter tires, each designed with advanced tread compounds and highly evolved tread patterns to be the best for when winter conditions are the worst. We evaluated each tire's ability to accelerate, brake and drive through the snow and across ice. Both objective tests measuring each tire's performance with sensitive on-board instruments, and subjective ratings of how each tire felt from the driver's seat were conducted.
