Top 3 Matador MP 92 Sibir Snow Reviews

Given 80% while driving a Suzuki SX4 1.6 LITRE PETROL (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 3,000 average miles
Normally I take only premium brands, Matador chosen first time after my friend checked them on his car and persuaded me to buy.Tested on Suzuki SX4 for one winter season in Bosnia and Herzegowina.Very able in deep fresh snow, surprisingly good traction and braking. Good handling on dry surfaces, very good on wet asphalt during braking, predictible behavior.Much less noisy than some premium winter tyres I had last 20 years. For one season which was not so snowy in Bosnia there are hardly any signs of wear (I took off them early as spring came very early) during 5000km milleage on them. All in all - a bargain as I see no week point during the use but the price i so good.

Given 86% while driving a Opel Insignia B (235/50 R18 V) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
This is my first set of Matador tyres and even though I was a little afraid since it is a cheaper brand within Continental company I am very satisfied. In the summer I use the same size Continental SportContact 5 in standard load version. These winter Matador tyres came in extra load version. The differece in the comfort is not noticeable. Also in comparison to summer Continental the noise is not higher.
In the wet they feel very safe even at motorway speeds. in sharper turns their grip is very good as well. Until now I have not experienced aquaplaning in any situation.
In the dry at higher temperatures (above 14-15 °C) the braking distance is longer and they feel soft but as soon as the temperature decreases below 10 °C it is much better.
The snow traction and braking is very good and the traction is reasonable even on moist/muddy forrest road.
Overall I am pleasantly surprised. Bearing in mind the price I was expecting much bigger difference in comparison to premium brands.

Given 95% while driving a Skoda Octavia vRS (225/45 R17 V) on mostly motorways for 32,000 spirited miles
these tyres were on my vrs when bought , I was unsure at first but after driving all winter on these I was very surprised how they performed . Shifted loads of water , handling in the wet super , coped as well in dry conditions through the summer . So much so I put the new hectoras on these were a bit noisy though ,. Would recommend the Subir snow for winter driving

Given 81% while driving a Kia Motors Sportage (235/55 R17 H) on mostly motorways for 7,000 average miles
Not expensive tyres but great quality overall. Good on dry, satisfactory on wet . Not tested on ice but good on snow. Sidewalls a little bit soft. Very good ride comfort ( far better than optimo k415 ). Can't tell exactly about wear. I would buy it again.

Given 83% while driving a Volvo 744 Turbo (185/65 R15) on a combination of roads for 3,000 spirited miles
Overall excellent tires for the price. New tires are excelent on snow and wet condition roads. Also gives quite good feedback on ice. A little worn starts to slip more on ice, but are stil great on icy or frozen gravel roads. Wear is even anv haven't noticed any disbalance.

Given 80% while driving a Nissan X trail 2.5 LPG (225/75 R16 T) on mostly country roads for 300 spirited miles
Don`t know yet about wear, but on the black or white ice (compressed snow) and standard ice, tyre works good - 8/10 at braking. Same in the snow.
Torque and accelaration on the ice or compacted snow also very good.
Even with 2-wd it is about 8 from 10.

A bit less good is cornering on ice. Car tends to slip traight instead of turning.

In the mud tyre does not perform as well as Debica Frigo 2 - this was REALLY good tyre in all kinds of snow and ice and also in MUD.
If we compare with this tyre, Debica could fly as fast as 60 kph during slip track turn, while MP92 flew off the same track already at 30 kph...

But overall pretty satisfied with MP92 for winter conditions.

Waiting for lake ice to test in at full performance 4x4
