2017-04-19 - I require crossover tyres for my Renault kadjar - will these operate well in snow and ice?

The Continental WinterContact TS830P is a very well regarded European winter tyre. Depending on your location, you might want to consider a Nordic winter tyre or a studded winter tyre if ice is a big problem (where local laws allow)

Given 97% while driving a Toyota Auris (195/65 R15 T) on a combination of roads for 6,000 easy going miles
The tyres were fitted in September 2018 and the results were very good. Superb dry and wet grip (tarmac and gravel), driving on snow and mud was also easy, no difficulties encountered whatsoever. By far the best tyres I ever owned and believe me, I tested quite a lot of brands and models, premium and mid-range mostly: Michelin, Nokian, Goodyear, Falken, Vredestein, Yokohama, etc. Although I wanted the TS860 model, I actually got these instead due to some delivery error. Would recommend and buy again.

Given 76% while driving a Mazda 3 2.0 DISI (205/55 R16 H) on a combination of roads for 13,000 average miles
The main reasons why I chose WinterContact TS 830P are: non-directional tread (more regular tyre wear due to possibility of changing rotation direction), conti seal technology (my Mazda has no spare wheel), high performance winter tyre (better road handling and feedback). The tyres replaced Pirelli Winter Snow Control 3. In comparison to the Pirellis the Contis are significantly quieter even after 21,000 km. The wet grip is very good and I have never had any issues with aquaplanning. In the dry they provide quite good amount of feedback and stability for winter tyres even at temperatures above 10°C. In the snow traction I do not feel any difference from the Pirellis. The fuel consumption is higher than it used to be on Pirellis. After 21,000 km they have approximately 6 mm of tread remaining. It seems they might last up to 40 - 45,000 km. Very similar to Pirellis.

I am realy dissapointed in this tires.
In winter conditions they are very bad.
I expected a lot more from them being Continental with good test results.
