Choosing a tyre is never easy. To help you select the right tyre, we have concocted a selection for winter 2014/2015.
First and foremost, this list of products is not exhaustive and is primarily based on the most common dimensions available on the market (205/55 R16 and 225/45 R17).
Our selection only includes winter tyres (and not Nordic tyres) that are suitable and recommended for "normal" winter conditions.
The tyres we suggest were selected from a set of criteria based on their test results, the homogeneity of their performances and also their technology. Logically, the latter benefits the most recent tyres. (The tyres are presented in alphabetical order; this is not, under any circumstances, a ranking.)
Furthermore, this selection includes products with different price positions.
