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 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.

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.
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.

Supermoto Snow Tire Test!! (snowtarded again!)
I missed you guys! That was a long hiatus from motovlogging. Lots of
heavy breathing in this one. Yup. I'm a newb. E for Effort! (Tips from
the experienced welcomed. I've only ever driven a car in snow like this.)
Next winter, it'll be a pair of Continental TKC 80 tires. I've tried this
before, with street tires: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnJCl_bFvD4

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
Winter Tyres or 4x4: which is best? - Auto Express

Winter tyres are going to be on a lot of minds this year - Britain could
face a particularly harsh winter this year, with snow falling from as early
as November. If you've got a four-wheel drive car, you probably think
you're properly prepared - but are you?
We went up to Tamworth Snowdome to find out if a front-wheel drive car with
winter tyres has more traction in the snow than a 4x4 with summer tyres
fitted. We used two Ford Kugas, both with 2.0-litre diesel engines and
manual gearboxes - but one is front-wheel drive, and the other all-wheel
drive. The 4x4 Ford Kuga costs £1500 more than the normal model.
In snowy conditions the rubber in summer tyres gets harder and less grippy.
Winter tyres use a softer compound, and a tread pattern that's designed to
pick up snow - improving grip in these harsh conditions.
In our first test we saw that the front-wheel drive car on summer tyres was
hopeless in the snow - but when fitted with winter tyres, it obviously did
much better. However we also tested the 4x4 on summer tyres - and the
results might surprise you.
With winter tyres, the normal Kuga went 110 metres up the slope, while the
4x4 car only made it 13 metres up, before sliding back down 9 metres. in
the end, it ended up no further than the standard did with summer tyres.
We also tested the four-wheel drive Ford Kuga with winter tyres - and the
difference was astonishing. There was plenty of grip and the car drove all
the way to the top of the steep ski slope without a problem.
Obviously, the best solution for driving on snow is to have a 4x4 on winter
tyres - without the right rubber, a 4x4 is just as useless as a two wheel
Having four-wheel drive won't help with braking, though - and that's much
