    The snowtech 2 is basically a rebranded Conti TS800, with minor modifications (2 added water channel).It is built in the same factory by conti...
    Grip is phenomenal in all conditions, basically you get a conti wintercontact at half price. Very low road noise,good consumption, wear is expected to be average. At the 2013 Autobild winter tire test it finished 4th and it had the shortest stopping distance in snow!!!

    I was looking for a good tire for winter - i got it! It has a good choise (price-quality) it gives you all the confidance you need on snow and on wet roads. I went offroad/unpaved roads aswell and giving that those are road tires it felt great. I recomand them for any car.

    Very good budget tire. Have been very pleased with their performance in the snow and they lasted quite some time. Ice performance isn't quite the best, at least not with my car. Would definetly cosider them again.

    They behave all right when the temperatures are low and the roads are clean, they are pretty reassuring in the wet, but on ice and snow they are not ideal. They have mediocre winter capabilities and offer none of the confidence premium rubber does and are pretty much the worst winter tires I have purchased. Ultimately, I got what I paid for, the price on them was very, very attractive. (25 pounds a corner)

    The worst tires I've had in 25 years of driving!
    I got a pair of Viking Snow Tech for the winter. After I put them on the car the feeling was that I am still driving with my 3 years old summer tires - no difference. On snow and ice they perform like old worn off summer tires - no grip at all. A total waste of money!!!

    I bought these as a budget option from my garage. They ended up charging me Michelin money for them, but that's beside the point. They're an overall good tire. The grip in the dry and wet is good. As well is the grip on snow. The handling inspires confidence. Road noise isn't too bad in my opinion. You hear them, but not annoyingly. I can't say much about wear yet, since I have had them for just 5k km.

    Preety good tires so far. they feel good, and handled nicely a rough winter in a city where ice and snow on the road is something normal...
