Top Hankook Winter i cept RS Review

Given 84% while driving a Alfa Romeo 147 JTD (195/60 R15 H) on mostly motorways for 25,000 average miles
This was the 3rd winter on these tyres, and I can only say good thing about them.
The really astonishing thing is, that I can do 4.1 avarage consumption with an Alfa 147 1.9 JTDM, while in teh summer I can't go below 4.6 with Vredestein Sportrac 3 (205/60/R15), so rolling resistance is also remarkable!

Excellent tires for the money. I use them on Grande Punto and buy again for Fiat Stilo.

Read This..Superb Tyres
I used these tyres through the winter of 2011/2012 which we had limited snow, but cold (ish) temps and found they were excellent. Im a spirited driver and the wear rate is excellent.
Winter 2012/2013 a lot more snow has landed. All i can say is i love these tyres. We live in Bury and have a local hill called Holcombe hill. One of the snowy nights i took the car for a drive, overtaking everyone with summer tyres getting beeped at an awful lot. I even overtook 4x4 un-knowingly to them i have winter tyres and they have summer tyres. I drove up Holcombe hill with ease, turned round half way up, it just turned driving into so much fun.
I know the limits of the tyres, you're not invincible but i'll be removing them end of march and getting a 3rd winter out of them. Unless there is 1 foot of snow you will not get stuck at all with these tyres. Cornering, ice, snow, rain, dry, cold these will do it all. Try and buy in middle of summer when cheaper. One last point on Winter tyres do not buy any tyres from ebay which have 3-4mm of tread on winter tyre. Trust me you will not get the full potential of 6mm plus tread (AT LEAST) and you will think winter tyres are no good. I have also used Hankook optimo 4s and they are superb tyres as well.
