180/65 15 Tyre Review Highlights

Michelin CrossClimate rated 91% while driving a Dacia Logan
Driving on a combination of roads for 2000 spirited miles
they seem to pick up EVERY pebble on the road surface, be it tarmac or gravel. Some don't get away from the tread until very high speed is reached and when they do, well... a solid bang in the bodywork is what happens.

Otherwise, very good in the dry, exceptional in the wet, comfortable, low rolling resistance, translating both into low noise and good fuel consumption. Looking forward for some snow and ice.

Continental WinterContact TS830 rated 80% while driving a CitroŽn xsara picasso
Driving on a combination of roads for 200 average miles
I listed my tyres as Conti TS830 as they are from the same stable but they are in fact Gislaved Nordfrost.
Yesterday morning I had to drive my Citroen Picasso from Rugby to London and back. Unfortunately (for others, not me) the central section of my journey through Buckinghamshire & Bedfordshire the M1 was down to 1 lane & temperature dropped to minus 7 . When that lane slowed to 40 MPH I pulled into lane 3 on 2-3 inches of dirty snow. I drove the next 20 miles almost on my own at least 10MPH faster - often more, than those stuck in lane 2. I was eventually joined by one of the many Range Rovers I had overtaken and a German registered Passat - obviously on snow tyres too. I am now retired (from the tyre trade) why do so few people in UK realize that they need these tyres in the winter. It is a win win situation.
