while driving a
Ford Focus mk2
(195/65 R15 T) on
mostly country roads
Excellent winter tyres, especially on snowy roads. Uphill, downhill, curves, straight lines, snowy, wet or dry, these tires just make the driving seem almost too easy. No slippage whatsoever.
They are a bit noisier and slightly more fuel consuming than the Good Year summer tyres they've replaced for the winter, but that is to be expected, no proper winter tyre will be as smooth as a summer tyre. You've got to give something for the extra grip you get, right?
Overall, highly recommended and would definitely buy again.
