Winter tire buying can be a confusing challenge, as there are now six types of tire you can realistically fit to your car. But which is best? To find out, I test summer, all season, all weather, winter, extreme winter and studded tires in dry, wet, snow and ice testing, covering handling, braking and grip.
To find out which is best for your own situation, watch the video for the full details, and the data can be found further down the page.
Note: There's no "winner" in this test, the final order below is simply to keep them in the summer tire to studded tire order as presented in the video. You need to decide which type of tire is best for you, based on your own driving patterns.
