Top Riken Snowtime B2 Review

Given 79% (breakdown) while driving a Jaguar X Type 2.0 FWD (205/55 R16) on mostly motorways for 6,000 average miles
As expected, much better grip in the snow than the Pirelli summers they replaced.
Pleasantly surprised that they are also quieter, and fuel economy has improved 5%. This is compared to Pirelli 16".
I also ran Pirelli 17" summer previously and found the move to 16" summer improved ride quality and reduced noise as well, so with the move to 16" and winter the effects were cumulative

Given 77% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Mondeo 2008 1.6 (205/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
This is an update to my earlier review where I stated it was a relief to get the summer tires on. New rear shocks at 30K resolved the odd handling! The Riken's have been back on the car three times, once until June. I think the wet grip got better with a little wear and they are lasting very well. This year they were a joy to refit after removing noisy Nankang NSII tires, so much quieter and a relief to find it was not an issue with the car. they still have so much tread I might not bother changing for the summer.

Given 61% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Mondeo 2008 1.6 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 3,000 average miles
Fitted December 2011. Only one day of snow but noticeably better control than my recollection of the previous year in the snow. In non-snow conditions the handling of car is different with lower limits than the summer tyres (Mitch Pilot Prem) in both dry and wet. It has been interesting to observe the car stability control helping to save me from big moments. I just have to remember to drive slower and not push on roundabouts or bends particularly in the wet as they let go suddenly. Was a relief to get the summer tyres back on after the winter. Minimal wear in 3k miles. Note Michelin appear to own Riken.
