Vredestein Quatrac Lite9th: Vredestein Quatrac Lite
Overall: Seven per cent off the best winter tyre in the snow, better than the best winter tyre in the dry, and again 7% behind the best winter in the cold wet test, but 10% ahead of the summer tyre

Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance10th: Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance
Overall: An unsurprisingly fail in all snow tests, the summer tyre needed an extra 5 metres to stop under wet braking. Slight edge on the winters in the cold dry tests
