Tire Rack - Winter Testing at the Arctic Circle: Ultra High Performance All-Season Tires
http://www.tirerack.com/a.jsp?a=HP5&url=/tires/tests/testDisplay.jsp&ttid=1 24 Our three-part Arctic Circle winter series from January of 2009 concludes with this evaluation of the effectiveness of Ultra High Performance All-Season tires -- during the height of the winter season -- in Northern Sweden. These tires' three-season focus usually comes at some expense in the fourth season's wintertime traction levels. Our test revealed just how much, or little, snow traction is provided in these all-season designs by comparing the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position, Continental ExtremeContact DWS, Goodyear Eagle F1 All Season, Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus and Yokohama Avid W4s.

Now watch as Tire Rack compares the difference between winter/snow tires, all-season tires and summer tires by evaluating acceleration, stopping and cornering capabilities — this time using an ice rink as our test track.
