Passenger Car Winter Premium Touring Tyres Tyre Review Highlights

Hankook Winter I cept RS3 rated 97% while driving a BMW
Driving on a combination of roads for 2000 average miles
I did some serious research before buying this tire. I oscillate between several brands, including the Hankook RS3. The reviews on Tyrereviews led me to opt for the RS3 in the end. I recommend the ones with rim protection, as long as it not only protects the curbs, but also the gravel that bounces off the roads. On the other hand, the tire seems much more robust than the one without rim protection. In RO there is a difference of 15 euros / tyre.
To begin with, I say that I did not test the tires in conditions of heavy snow because in Romania the first serious snow has just arrived, but I drove with them over 2000 km on roads with mud, rain and, of course, dry conditions. What surprised me the first time was the noise, which is almost non-existent in my car, although they are registered in the 72 dB category. In terms of mud traction, I've been to the mountains and climbed a steep incline with no problem, while my friends with 4x2 traction didn't budge from the bottom of the slope. Yes, we're talking about a 4x4 car, but it's not just about that as long as the tires you had before didn't offer the safety that they do. In fact, I had the opportunity to drive 1000 km continuously, along several relief zones, and I was impressed both on mountain serpentines and in the rain, on the plains, where I constantly went over 100 km/h, without being disturbed by the noise that the tire makes when draining the water.
I'm curious how long they will last as the BMW E60 530xd (235hp) wears out the tires faster than other cars I've had. If they pass the endurance test, I'll put them on again, maybe even RS4, in case they show up in the meantime. Anyway, they are above my expectations considering I had Continental before these. I wouldn't say they are lower, although the price is 35-40% lower. In the morning we encountered the first snow of this winter but the streets were clear so I can't give clear feedback on this surface but I'm sure it wouldn't disappoint. In Romania, a set of 4 tires 225/50/17 94H costs about 460 euros (with rim protection included). I installed them in December 2022, with DOT October 2022 (made in Hungary).
Originally, having 4x4 traction, I wanted to put all season, but I'm glad I didn't as long as you don't enjoy driving fully you play in summer or winter. Safety comes first.
I recommend the Hankook RS3.

Hankook Winter I cept RS3 rated 93% while driving a Volkswagen Passat B5.5 1.9 TDi 130bhp highline
Driving on a combination of roads for 6000 easy going miles
A very good tire from Hankook. Very good in all weather conditions and on all surfaces. Very stable on dry and wet surfaces. Very good and stable on snow.

Michelin Alpin 6 rated 88% while driving a Ford Focus MK2 1.6TDCI 2008 2011
Driving on mostly motorways for 5000 average miles
I am very pleased about the Michelin tires Alpin 6. Although there was not a lot of snow this year, they performed very well on the snowy days. I bought them at https://www.autobanden-prijsvechter.nl/ and payed a very good price. So i`m very pleased with these tires.

Kumho Winter Craft WP52 rated 79% while driving a Ford 05 Mondeo 185 (modded) diesel
Driving on a combination of roads for 3000 spirited miles
Nice grip both on snow and on dry/wet roads. Wear seems a little high, but we'll see how long they'll last.

Hankook Winter I cept RS3 rated 49% while driving a Volkswagen Golf 6 2.0 TDI 140bhp
Driving on mostly motorways for 0 average miles
The loudest winter tyre I´ve ever had. Disappointed with noise level and rolling resistance. I drive 90% on a highway and don´t feel very comfortable at speed 130km/h and continuous rain. Fuel consumption higher in compare to Conti TS860 (previous tyres). Dry grip and handling good. Wear N/A, made around 2500 km.

Driving on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
I have these on my Mercedes SUV. Best winter tire I have ever bought. Great on dry roads, fabulous on snow and ice. They grab the road no matter what the condition is. Tread wear is excellent.

Bridgestone Blizzak DM V2 rated 89% while driving a Volkswagen TOUAREG V6 TDI
Driving on mostly country roads for 15000 spirited miles
We have 2 sets of Blizzaks on 2 VW Touaregs (2014 tdi and 2006 V8). *they are intentionally oversized 30.5" vs 29" oem diameter. We run these from mid-November through end-March in southeast Idaho and 6,000ft MSL. We've never been stuck(yet) and we've received nearly 4ft of snow this 2022-2023 winter. No noticeable road noise. Wife (2014 tdi) likes the ride and extra confidence vs. a/s Pirellis for summer. No comparison to "HT" tires on my 06 V8 - better ride, equally quiet, much improved handling in almost all conditions (except dry, warm roads). Have a 3rd set of Blizzak WS90's on our son's awd sedan. Would highly recommend any of these, and would buy again. *Would also buy Nokians, but fewer SUV size options and frequently on backorder in the US.

Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 rated NAN% while driving a Toyota 4runner
Driving on a combination of roads for 7000 easy going miles
R3 SUV purchased Oct/21. We are mandated winter tires October 1 to April 30. I don’t care how they drive in rain, what they look like or how noisy they are all I care about is severe winter performance. These tires have poor lateral grip and braking and acceleration on hard compact snow is terrible. I don’t know if these tires were not cured properly or just a poor compound. They remind me of bias belt tires from the sixties. I cannot recommend these tires. I have been licensed for 60 years and have driven public transportation and motor coaches for 30 years, several smaller vehicles and motor cycles.

Continental WinterContact TS 850 rated 99% while driving a Audi A6
Driving on a combination of roads for 1500 spirited miles
I had these tires fitted last October, and testing them out in the Canadian winter, I've got to say there's no fear driving with these on snow. I can't comment on the wear of these tires as I just got them, but they seem to be doing fine. My impression is that these tires are definitely worth the extra dollar. I say this coming off a set of Hankook I'cept Evos, which were absolutely terrible with road noise. These tires are dead silent compared to that. Dry grip is good, there is a little bit of vibration, but that could easily be my rims. Wet grip is excellent, never had any problems in the rain with hydroplaning. My car does have four wheel drive, which could be a contributing factor, so keep that in mind. Excellent tire, excellent drive, worth the extra money.

Pirelli Cinturato Winter rated 55% while driving a SEAT 1.4 TSI
Driving on mostly town for 0 spirited miles
Update during the 4th winter as I previously wrote a review here. The dry grip is getting horrible as time passes and the tire gets way noisier. I did not expect that to happen after 4 years, and yes, even though the lifespan of a tire is about 6 years, the tires have been kept in good condition and they were not really too much driven on. Would not buy it again, but overall it was a good purchase.
