SUV and 4x4 Winter Ultra High Performance Tyres Tyre Review Highlights

Michelin Latitude Alpin 2 rated 84% while driving a Volkswagen Amarok permanent 4x4
Driving on a combination of roads for 0 spirited miles
I have been using these tires for a couple of winters on my 3.0 lt Amarok. Typical Michelins… very correct tires with low wear rate. I ve been doing tire development in the past and rallied internationally for 35 years. I have competed in 30 winter rallies. Tires are always a compromise. These could possibly be a little better on dry cold conditions ( they are good but could be even better), they are excellent on the wet and they are working very well on winter conditions ( snow, ice, mixed etc ) You don’t get any unpleasant surprises and they wear out fine as a winter tire. All winter tires get noticeably less grippy the second winter and deteriorate the third one.The compound gets harder every summer left on the store. The LA2 is a very good and honest tire for Central and Southern European ( alpine ) climates. I just ordered one set as I heard the model will probably change in the near future.

Goodyear UltraGrip Performance SUV Gen 1 rated 91% while driving a Hyundai Tucson
Driving on a combination of roads for 25000 spirited miles
Had these on for 2 winters, now on the third. I like going on various mild trails so I was looking for a tyre that can handle some snow and mud. I am very pleased about the performance in these conditions. The 4x4 system on the car is not excellent but combined with these tyres it handles snow and mud very well. There have been some situations where to climb a hill I needed some momentum, but keep in mind that I'm talking about a very bad road and a steep incline with a combination of snow and mud. I think the next step would only be with more aggressive offroad tires. In regards to ice, I haven't had the chance to test them too much, but with a bit of attention, they handled it very well. Lots of other cars were going for chains (which I didn't have) or struggled on this icy road that I could climb without much drama. Regarding the dry and wet performance, I don't have that much time to swap these when the first snow comes, so I have them on my car for about 4-6 months each year in temperatures ranging from +15C to -20C. On both dry and wet asphalt I can feel a bit less traction than on the summer tyres (Continental PremiumContact 5), but only in spirited driving. I don't have any problems with aquaplaning and in regular use or for someone that doesn't know which tyres are fitted you don't notice any difference from the summer ones. The car is about 1600kgs empty or somewhere around 1800kgs loaded and handling is more than adequate. In terms of wear, I think I have somewhere around 20-30k km on them and they are in good shape. I don't notice any dropoff in performance yet. I think they can go 30-50k km more, but can't say for sure right now. I didn't notice any excessive noise and they are precise even at highway speeds. Overall I find them as a very good option for offroad performance in mud and snow, while trading off very little performance on asphalt that for most people won't even be noticeable.

Dunlop Winter Sport 5 SUV rated 88% while driving a Audi 2.0tdi 177 sline sportback
Driving on a combination of roads for 15000 average miles
Love these tyres , bought them on 3 separate occasions. I need a reliable car no matter what the weather, as I live in Scotland and do 15k miles a year for work. These tyres are also superb in the rain so I tend to leave them on till mid April and swap again mid September. Comfortable tyres , not noisy. Have to be changed in Summer as noticeably less grip and spongy in warmer weather.

Nexen Winguard Sport 2 SUV rated 77% while driving a BMW X5 3.0d Sport
Driving on a combination of roads for 5000 easy going miles
I have BMW X5 with R19 255/50 switched to Nexen Winguard Sport 2 s from Lassa Competus winter 2, the main difference are : Nexen is more comfortable and quieter, and the grip on snow/ice is better, but handling feel is more 'cheesee', i live in Latvia, so we have proper winter , average temp is minus -7c, -12c and in colder temps tyres feels batter than in warm temperatures because they is quite soft . For the price the grip is geat but do not expect them to be sporty. Could recommends this tires ? Yes but only in winter, not all season tyres. Downsides of both Nexen and Lassa is weight, little bit on heavy side.

Goodyear UltraGrip Performance SUV Gen 1 rated 92% while driving a Citroën C5 Aircross 1.5 BlueHDI 130
Driving on a combination of roads for 5000 average miles
This are nice tires. Exceptional good grip on wet roads and very good on snow too. On Ice road is controllable not perfect but probably only studded tires are. They are bit noisier on dry pavement but not too much. the only complain is they are bit too soft when temperature is above 7C

Bridgestone Blizzak LM25 4X4 rated 29% while driving a BMW X5 3.0d Sport
Driving on mostly country roads for 1500 average miles
Hi. First time tried this tyre, extremly noisy. Wet road/bit cold is very slippery. Dry is is excellent, but for winter this tyre is risk of life.

Nokian WR SUV 3 rated 89% while driving a Toyota Hilux mk6 3.0
Driving on mostly motorways for 10000 spirited miles
A very good tire, for normal winter driving at a very good price. Very good performance on dry and wet roads, have driven on motorways at high speeds with no problem on dry and wet. On compacted snow is also good, not the best but you would not have problems like getting stuck, also in deep fresh snow it is ok. it is slightly more intended for use on wet and dry roads at winter temperatures than on snow. have driven about 15.000km, and the is no visible signs of wear yet. For me is an excelent tire, even my Hilux is not a sporty car I can drive pretty fast in curves, and the Nokians WR SUV3 had always had high grip, especially being cheaper than other brands, and will surely buy again!
