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.

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.
VESPA GTS 300. Rideout 3rd Feb. Filmed with a CONTOUR ROAM 2 in 720 at 60FPS.
Took my Vespa out for the first time this year. Fixed my new helmet cam to
my lid and filmed the journey. The film was shot over an hour so edited
with music not wind noise!
The scooter is a 2009 Vespa GTS 300 with only 700 miles on the clock, I
bought it last October wit low mileage and haven't added much to that over
the winter. I fitted an Akropovic and it sounds lovely. Other options are
stainless steel running boards, front and rear rack, stainless suspension
cover. I'm waiting for a Vespa single sport gel seat to be delivered, that
will complete the look.
The scooter itself is a wonderful thing, pulls nicely and is a ball of joy
wrapped up in a beautiful parcel. If you're thinking about buying a modern
Vespa, just do it. You'll also get a lot of admiring glances.
The roads were damp and diesel patches everywhere that's why my riding
looks odd, I'm trying to stay in the dry on the road!.
It was a good ride but cold and only one car came a bit close, hilighted in
I feel that a helmet cam may make cars be more wary of you, I seemed to be
getting more room but then again maybe it's because I ride a Vespa and
people seem to be friendly towards them.
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.
snow tires with dilute tread vs snow tires with dense tread (subaru forester)
Some clips in deep snow that show the differences between snow tires with
dilute tread and snow tires with dense
The tires was cooper weathermaster s/t 2 and nokian hakkapeliitta R.
In snow that with cooper was easy, with R i had big problems. The basic
problem was that car was changed course or was stoped because the tire
could not dig the snow.
That video shows how important is the kind of tires in snow.
In all cases, the snow was old and very tight.

Do you really need Winter Tires? Watch as Tire Rack compares the
difference between winter/snow tires, all-season tires and summer tires by

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.
a test of the winter tyres on my 1 Series
Forgot about this rather steep little hill (camera doesnt do it justice but
see the angle of the trees) whilst taking a shortcut through the back lanes
to avoid traffic. Just about got up there second attempt using the entrance
to a field to straight line the corner, quite surprised as the Falken
