Just for a bit of information really.
I have seen a lot of posts of late about winter tyres being pointless/useless and that people should just drive to the conditions. Also that fitting 2 is ok and that 4 is pointless.
Firstly, people don't all drive the same, what you may find ok and handle in a cautious manner, others will drive like dicks. We can only cater for ourselves.
2 over 4? Is it any good? Yes they will get you going, but you never know whats around the corner, what if you have to brake hard to avoid a child who just runs out? What if................... yes there are a lot of what if's but its something we (imo) should at least consider and not go all stupid about. I mean, what if a plane hit the house? Yes it can happen, accidents do yet we are still cautious with other things and don't even think about it. have you ever told or been told to never run with scissors in your hand etc? i have never fallen with them in my hand but its just common sense. Something that a lot of people seem to lack.
Now I have found a few vids on you tube, I cannot comment on the fact that the cars are different etc yet I still believe it the results should be taken into account. If I had done the experiments then things would have been kept constant!
First Vid - 2 mins 40 seconds demonstrates 2 vs 4 tyres. Its a fairly long vid but imo worth watching.
Winter tyres vs summer tyres a test in the wet with identical cars.
Summer tyres vs winter tyres in the snow
Please note, don't flame me as I have just brought these to your attention. There is a point to be made and I believe these vids show it. Something to think about?
