while driving a
Opel Astra G
(195/50 R16) on
a combination of roads
after ~7000km of use - stay away from snow. 95% of the time I were driving on snow less roads. Didnt have much snow this winter but I did buy these TRIANGLE WINTERX TW401 becouse they did show good result on wet/ice in 1 and only test I found. Yes, they were realy ok on these. I knew they wont be excelent with deep snow - and I guess it right, but still driveable. My guess - after 3000km they do lose his best rubber for snow preformance.
Now on the dry and wet they still ok, (the wear of fronts is 3mm). There is no way I will swap axles for the next winter. Just - keep going all summer or buy summer tires.
Dont use/buy it if u are a line to line quick changer. They have soft sidewalls. I was expecting stronger sidewalls as they are made for middle europe winters.
I would recomend these tires for down side england or channel island weathers in winter.
