while driving a
Opel Astra j 1.6
(205/60 R16) on
a combination of roads
Excellent tires for snow. Performed me really well in winter conditions. I seen them in really dangerous situation how they outperformed 2 other winter tiers. One of them was even premium brand.
Situation Night, -2 Celsius, City, dark road, 2 lane road. Driving on the right lane with speed 50 kph, 3-5 cm of Snow on the road. Pedestrian jumps out from nowhere on pedestrian crossing, I was 10 m from crossing I've managed to stop 1 meter in front of him. The 2 cars which were roughly 10-15 meters behind me, one ended up 5 meters IN front of me on the side walk on the right side almost hitting the tree, he was braking and using low budged winter tiers. His tiers were just sliding like skies. The second guy used premium tiers he managed to stopped on the road left lane 3-4 meters IN front of me, on pedestrian crossing, breezing the pedestrian. We were all driving similar speed. Everyone almost had a hart attack. But SAVA ESKIMO HP 2 did its job and prevented injury of pedestrian an me in jail. My tiers were at that time 3 year old and had some miles on them.
On highways they are stable and they keep the grip even with gentle snow on the road.
Have been using them for 6 years and need to replace them due to their old age, as they still didn't worn out.
Good job SAVA and Goodyear will buy again!
