ContiWinterContact TS 800
First time using Winter Tyres, put them on my main commuting car.
These Continentals are excellent up to 8 or 9 °C, passed that they do become too soft, though they are supposed to as they're winter tyres.
Having tested them properly in all conditions, including snow & ice, the conclusion is that they are far better than Summer tyres in such conditions, they really do make a huge difference to grip and braking. They seem to work best at around 0 to -2 °C.
Because of the crazy fluctuations in British weather and temperatures, they do wear a bit quicker when the temperature is above 7°C, though to be expected so not exactly a dislike. Used for their intended purpose, there is nothing to dislike about them.
Driving Style: spirited
