Passenger Car Winter Premium Touring Tyres Tyre Review Highlights

Kumho WinterCraft Ice rated 76% while driving a Hyundai Genesis Coupe V6
Driving on mostly country roads for 1500 spirited miles
Tread pattern on this tire is directional, so 2 are being used on rear axle only. Car is a fairly heavy rwd with a limited slip diff, so the tires get some help. Grip is good in snow. Tires are composed when powered through rutted, hilly b-roads. Tires can be composed when navigating uphill on snow-covered roads.

However, it seems the Wi31 have a tendency to allow snap oversteer when approaching WoT. The slide itself is predictable and possible to reel in.

In general: grip levels are good, but once lost, the tire struggles to respond under continued throttle.

No comment on ice as there are no studs installed on the tires. Wear is noticeable outside of snow. Comfort is not an issue, nor is it a real strength.

This (Wintercraft Wi31) is a fairly old model, and you should be able to find discounts. It's important to make sure you check the manufacture year of your tire (XXYY) -> XX = week of manufacture, YY = year of manufacture. You may not want a "new" tire that is in reality a year or two old, since it means it sat in a warehouse in unknown conditions for a long time!

Hankook Winter I cept RS3 rated 67% while driving a Honda Accord Euro
Driving on mostly town for 3000 spirited miles
I'm pretentious where many might be not. So the noise for me is a huge dissapointment, I should have known but I just didn't think clearly before buying, other winter tyres can get to 69 DB, this one is 72 DB for my tyre spec size. And it's LOUD inside the cabin compared to my continental efficientgrip summer tyres.
Other than that, snow, rain are very good. Feels safe even at 160-200 km/h. Comfort is kinda lower than a summer tyre for me and it feels softer when steering.
It does the job done but.... one tyre cracked for me, and I didn't hit ANYTHING and very low mileage maybe no more than 4000 kms, so I just changed that one tyre but it definitely gives me a bad and cheap feel about them right now, scary actually. I hit some car breaking holes with the summer tyre and no issues so that's what I'm comparing with.

The noise just makes me regret them so much though :(, I might end up selling them, that bad for me, but they were pretty pricey so I might just be stuck with them as I don't wanna lose too much money on them. 100 Euros per tyre and I had higher expectations from the reviews.

Bridgestone Blizzak VRX2 rated 66% while driving a Honda FREED
Driving on a combination of roads for 500 spirited miles
Don't really drive the tires in cold temperatures but in the wet they do the job. Wheel spins fairly easily in the dry so can assume grip is not the best in dry weather. tread pattern is deep which is why i assume it has good grip in wet and snow but can be noisey at speed.

Very good grip on wet and snow, but with premature wear. I recommend them

Firestone Winterhawk 4 rated 74% while driving a Volkswagen Golf GTI 7.5
Driving on mostly motorways for 2500 spirited miles
Good quality for mid-range brand, cover winter needs. In general there is no high potential of performance for winter tyres independently of brand!

Continental WinterContact TS 870 rated 90% while driving a SEAT Ibiza 1.0 TSI 115
Driving on mostly country roads for 6200 average miles
This was my first winter on these tyres. They replaced the Conti Winter Contact 850P, that lasted 5 winters and nearly 50000 km on italian country roads. I hadn't had the chance to drive on snow and ice during last winter, so I can't say anything about it.
I can say that 870 are more sport tourer oriented than the 850P and have a very good progressiveness. As for the previous 850P, on dry surfaces the grip is good, on wet the grip is excellent, wear is really good as well as fuel consumption. The price is quite high but Continental Winter tyres are always worthy from my experience. Comfort: the sidewall is a little bit stiffer than 850P, a very little noise on wet surface can be noticed. I would recommend these tyres.

Bridgestone Blizzak LM005 rated 59% while driving a Volkswagen Golf 8, 1.5 TSI
Driving on a combination of roads for 7000 average miles
Dry, wet and snow grip were good while they were new. Unfortunately after only two winter seasons (approx. 10 000 km) tires became hard and performance on wet started to be really bad. I’ll have to replace them before next winter. Tires were never driven during warm weather which is why I am very surpsired with such a bad degradation. Not going to buy them again.

Kumho I Zen KW31 rated 46% while driving a Lexus IS250 RWD
Driving on a combination of roads for 6000 average miles
Outright useless in serious winter conditions. Stopping in the rain is so terrible, you might as well consider them economical, because once you set off, you will never stop again despite your best efforts. Jokes aside, they really are terrible in the wet. The only thing that takes your mind away from the crap performance is when you start thinking about the noise, because they are noisy. Generally, assuming you want to perform spirited driving in the dry, they are okay. I replaced the rear ones for studded Pirelli Ice Zeros which turned out phenomenal, and left the crap Kumho in the front. Left them there for a long time, and the wear didn't seem all too bad. So that's the one single positive aspect about them

Nokian Nordman 7 rated 81% while driving a Hyundai elantra
Driving on mostly motorways for 30000 easy going miles
Have put close to 45,000kms on these tires in harsh Alberta winters with lots of snow and ice roads. First year of use on them was excellent. As the tires aged I noticed a decline in ice performance often spinning out and I'm not an aggressive driver - but is a non-studded tire so i can't completely fault it for that. Also did get stuck a few times in deep snow (4-5" deep) when trying to accelerate from a stop - my vehicle is FWD so it's not entirely the tires fault. Loose powder snow on the paved motorways though has been excellent for the life of the tire and no complaints. Longevity of the tires has been excellent as from new at just over 13/32" of tread I'm now just at 11/32 with regular rotations every 5000kms so no complaints on tread life. The long tread life is maybe from a harder rubber compound used which may explain the drop in ice performance as they aged. All in all no complaints of my purchase but will be looking at studded tires come my next set.

Bridgestone Blizzak LM005 rated 82% while driving a BMW 330 Msport
Driving on a combination of roads for 3000 spirited miles
This was my tyre of choice after seeing some reviews on snow. I must say it delivered in snow as promised on a hill and slopes it really was good to drive with predictable control. I had to stop on slope and I managed to resume with not too much slip on a RWD off course DSC was OFF and gentle throttle control once it moves you can have some fun on snow. In a dry comfortable tyre for long journeys a bit noisy over 160 km/h, also very stable at 210 km/h in dry. In wet it’s stable and very good under breaking. On twisty roads I was surprised how good it was for a winter tyre, ton of grip and very stable on long fast medium corners and fast twisty roads.
