Semperit Speed Grip 2 THE BEST WINTER TYRE !!!

Given 100% while driving a Audi A4 3.0 litre TDI S Line Quattro (235/45 R17) on mostly town for 2,000 average miles
Drive them on Audi A4 3.0 quattro - last winter they performed perfectly. Tried to find a road to make them loose tracktion - I did not. On ice also very good, lost tracksion just for a bit once... The ride is smooth (the car is s-line, suspention is stiffer than ususal) low noise, I could not say about the wear, but no visual signs of such... Did not like much the price 450 Euro for a set of 4 tires. But costs every cent. Recommend!

In my opinion the Semperit Speed Grip 2 winter tyres that I used were below the summer tyres used by me before, the difference on dry surface was obvious (semperit winter tyres were worse than dunlop summer tyres even on wet surface!)

Given 83% while driving a SEAT LEON 1.8TSI (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 30,000 spirited miles
Good tire. More quiet than my summer tires Continental Sportcontact. Works well in snow and ice, suits for sporty driving. Wear was good (about 45000km) but in the end the tread edges became cracking and tires started loosing air when there was still 3mm tread left. Overall worked well through 12 months in Nordic winter and additional 6 months in Nordic summer period. Would recommend.

Given 91% while driving a Skoda Fabia 1.2TSI 77KW(stage 1 to 100KW) (185/55 R15 R) on a combination of roads for 30,000 spirited miles
Had them for 5 and a half winters now. had pirrellis before, i can only say that i was more satisfied with the performance on the semperits. drove them on ice, snow, rain, name it. very predictable even when driving intense. since i got them(and used them only in winter which is 4 months/year) i never had to rebalance them. gonna try speed grip 3's, although a bit more expensive, they sure know how to make a winter tyre

Given 90% while driving a Peugeot (185/65 R15) on a combination of roads for 12,000 average miles
Very balanced and comfortable tires. Excellent on dry roads, good enough on wet and good on snow. Due to the low rolling resistance it decreased fuel consumption.
Like most of the winter tires it tend to understeer.
I highly recommend these tires. Very good quality/price ratio.

Extremely good grip on dry and wet road. Decent, not extraordinary grip on snow.

Given 87% while driving a Alfa Romeo 159 (205/60 R16 H) on mostly town for 3,000 average miles
Great grip on snow and even decent on ice. Great grip on wet and dry too. Very comfortable and quiet tyre. The only disadvantage is a bit high wear rate but despite that I would buy it again.

Given 82% while driving a Mercedes Benz C180 Classic Sedan (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
Very good on snow, grip and braking. Long breaking distance on dry roads, not good for sport driving. Very quiet and comfortable.

These tires were suggested to me by my tire dealer. Although they are just a few days old, and winter is not here yet, they are smooth, quiet and grip the dry road well.
