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.
Continental Tire Track Day for Extreme Contact DW & DWS
http://www.caraudiomag.com It's a rough gig, but someone's gotta do it! Continental Tire held a track day for press at California Speedway, Fontana for the launch of their ultra high performance Extreme Contact DW and DWS tires. We went from autocross to go-karts to the oval and finished with a time attack competition. Nowhere did I get close to placing but at least I didn't crash a car. Like I was saying, it was a lot of work but we were able to get through it! And the tires performed superbly! This video isn't car audio related, but then, what kind of "wheels" would you have if you had no (or the wrong) tires!
BMW all wheel drive
You can see this BMW seemingly making quick work of the ice. What you don't see is the car completely stuck for twenty minutes. The owner borrowed our shovel and our ice chisel to get to this stage.The problem seemed to be the low ground clearence. Sorry no audio for this quickie.
Tire Rack - Winter Testing at the Arctic Circle: Studdable Winter/Snow
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.
