Winter Tyres v Summer Tyres: the Truth! - Auto Express

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 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
