“Winter Tyres - braking performance”

Written on: 12/01/2015 by wuMarshall432 (1 review written)

The poor wearing qualities of winter tyres has always put me off buying them, but recent reviews of the Continental range claim a new tread pattern spreads wear more evenly and a suggested life of 30k prompted me to buy. Given the nature of the tyres, I was expecting a high 'A' rating for braking performance and was disappointed at the 'C' rating stated on the supplied tyres. Last weeks 'Honest John' column appeared to explain this by stating Winter tyres have a significantly poorer performance in wet/warm conditions than 'normal' tyres. The tyres (including fitting) set me back well over £300, and I now wish I had settled for a good quality 'all-year' tyre.
