Top 3 Toyo SNOWPROX S 942 Reviews

Given 90% while driving a Alfa Romeo (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
Very good all-around winter tyre. As I live near the Alps the tyres were tested in various winter condition, ranging from heavy snowfall to icy surfaces. Especially good in wet at lower temperatures. Driving comfort could be a little bit better as the tyres are quiet noisy at highway speeds, but this is mainly due to M+S profile on tyre. Will buy again.

Definedly buying again

This is the worst winter tire i ever had.
On wet and dry it´s fine, and it´s sort of ok in slushy snow but as son as it gets below -5 it´s worthless.
You might just stick whit some soft compound summer tire instead.
I'm living in Sweden so i tested it a lot on real winter roads up here in the north and this is not a tire of choice.

Given 94% while driving a Nissan Micra (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 5,000 spirited miles
I've noticed no difference driving on these in the late summer and into autumn compared to my other car fitted with Continental Contact2 tyres. But come the first snow fall . . . these tyres are amazing. The grip in heavy rain, slush, mud and snow (both fresh and compacted) is little short of astounding. Highly recommended and I will be buying again. The value for money is beyond compare.
