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.

Do you need snow tires in the city? Snow Storm drive on Toronto Don Valley Parkway
Do you need snow tires if you live in the city , I think so. This is a drive in a snow storm on the Don Valley parkway going south. Lots of cars that have no traction spinning their wheels or just spinning out. This is before the snow plows or salters got out.

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.





Lexus NX Review

This premium compact crossover is a first for Lexus; its blend of edgy styling and world-leading technology making it a desirable addition to the range. The Lexus NX incorporates a choice of petrol and hybrid powertrains culminating in the highly efficient full hybrid NX 300h, and is offered in five trim levels, ranging from the entry-level S, up through SE and Luxury to the driver-focused F Sport model, and culminating in the range-topping Premier. Technology abounds on the NX, aiding both safety and convenience and making the Lexus a great place to be.





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.

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.

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.

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 incline. 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!
