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.

Lamborghini Aventador vs Ferrari FF Drag Race
It's not uncommon for us to drag race cars on a runway. But we've never done it at an active airport with passenger jets taking off and landing in the background. And so we leapt at the chance to take part in Race the Runway at Edinburgh Airport. The event, sponsored by Mercedes, was held to raise money for the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice and the Scottish Burned Children's Club. In total 25 cars, ranging from a Lamborghini Aventador to a TVR Tuscan, took part. Entrants were timed over a 1,350-metre course on one of the taxi runways. We would be driving an SLS GT, which, at 199mph, has the highest top speed of any current production Mercedes. So how did it fare against the competition? Watch the video and find out. The cars included: Lamborghini Aventador Ferrari FF Porsche 911 turbo (997) Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder Mercedes SL63 AMG Performance Mercedes SLS GT Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R Mercedes E63 AMG S BMW M6 BMW M3 GTS Audi RS6 (MkI) TVR Tuscan Ferrari 599 GTB HGTE Subscribe to our YouTube channel http://bit.ly/11Ad1j1 Subscribe to the mag http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/yt





New Mercedes S-Class vs Audi A8 vs Range Rover - Auto Express
Mercedes S-Class vs Audi A8 vs Range Rover full review: http://bit.ly/17fG17C Mercedes S-Class review: http://bit.ly/16kkEfg Subscribe to our YouTube channel http://bit.ly/11Ad1j1 Subscribe to the mag http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/yt Ever since the first Mercedes S-Class arrived in 1972 it has dominated the Luxury car sector -- until the excellent Range Rover came along recently. So can this new one regain its crown? The Range Rover sets the benchmark for the Mercedes to beat. And starting at around £70,000, this TDV6 Vogue is our pick of the range. By comparison the long wheelbase A8 3.0-litre TDI SE seems a bit of a bargain. At less than £64,000 it's the least expensive car here. The Mercedes S350 L SE costs two thousand pounds more than the Audi, but the S-Class is undoubtedly the most luxurious. The Range Rover comes and impressive second though, with the A8 third. The S-Class is offered with range of seating options. This one has the £4000 Executive Seat package but can pay even more to make them recline up to 43.5 degrees -- that's more than in any other car. The Audi doesn't have such versatile seats but in the back it's no less spacious than the Mercedes. It may be big on the outside but the Range Rover has 80mm less rear legroom than the two Germans. Bearing in mind that these cars are comfy cruisers, the Mercedes is the best to drive, followed by the Range Rover and finally the Audi -- on account of its sporty edge. Both the Audi A8 and the Range Rover are gadget-laden. You can get posh stereos, high tech screens, surround cameras and huge sunroofs in those cars, but being the newest the Mercedes has an advantage. It gets the latest displays, most advanced nigh vision system and even hot stone massage seats. So the S-Class leads the field for technology as well as being the most luxurious plus the best to drive and to be driven in. But there's just one last thing we need to consider. The S-Class's boot capacity is a respectable 510-litres, which is the same as the Audi A8. However, the Range Rover has a 909-litre capacity and, with the seats folded, can swallow 2,030 litres. That means the Range Rover is the most practical and overall it's a better luxury car than the Audi A8. The thing is though, the Mercedes S-Class is even better.

So far, we've only driven it on smooth tarmac in Ibiza, but now it's time for its real test -- on potholed city roads in the UK. Our test car is a top-spec Technic model, which adds 'luxuries' such as 13-inch alloys and carbon-look plastic on the roof and dash. The scissor doors are an extra £545, but are a must- have option for keeping your feet dry. Whichever way you look at it, this is a back-to-basics machine.

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.





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 help skidding.

Studding Your Own Tires--Bad Idea?
Uncertain of the age of the tires on my motorhome, I replaced them with new. The old ones still had a lot of good tread left, a fairly aggressive tread with lots of sipes, so I decided to put studs in them and make them my winter tires for my Bronco. I got a full two seasons out of them, and then this year one of them started to fail. So it was back to my Buckshot Raidal Mudders for the winter. Since I still had lots of studs left over, I decided to add some studs to the center lugs of the Buckshots. But that was before I realized that it may have been the studs that caused the damage to the old motorhome tire(s).
