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.

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.

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.

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.
