Get an overview: Here are the best winter tyres - and the worst

Then run it again. In the tire industry is about to fall over each other to explain about the big security gain by running on winter tires. We will like to sell the tires.

Others have even heard that summer tires under certain conditions can be better, even in the winter.

But really it is very simple, you would even choose a pair of light sandals, if it is cold, wet or slippery on the pavement? Here, give the proper shoes and a proper foothold.

From bilejernes organisation, FDM, is the message clear. The organization recommends that all you plan to drive a car in winter weather, put winter tires on the car

- winter tires are not just crucial for the safety, they also have great importance for the navigability. Therefore, there is no way around snow tires, if you want to run in vinterføre. In Denmark, the winter is, however, often more wet than white, and it is precisely the properties on the wet road, that separates the best tyre from the worst, says bilteknisk editor Søren W. Rasmussen

FDM even have good help for the drivers with the annual dæktest, as you have worked for the Danish situation, after the hard testing work is carried out to the German ADAC.

a total Of 34 winter tyres is tested, and, fortunately, fit the rubber to the two of the most popular vehicle classes at home: Mikroklassen such as the Peugeot 108, which typically runs on 165/70 14 inch and the small intermediate class with 205/55 and 16-inch. It can be cars VW Golf.

Among the small tires in 14-inch size is the winner, the Goodyear UltraGrip 9, which will get 5 stars. Here is the grip the best on wet roads, but the tire is also firmly in the snow and have a low rolling resistance for the benefit of fuel consumption. FDM also highlights the Michelin Alpin A4 and Dunlop Winter Response 2, which reaches up to 5 stars.

Worse, however, it appears with the three absolute worst tyres, as is the Mentor M200, Linglong Green-Max Winter HP and Aeolus SnowAce AW02 that all dumps with a bang, among other things, because they fall through, when you look at the grip on wet roads, which is very poor.

When it comes to 16-inch-the tires are the Continental ContiWinterContact TS 850, which is considered to be the best, partly because it is a winner on wet roads and in snow, at the same time, that the tyre lasts long. A single of the other competitors also get pulled, five stars home, namely Yokohama W. drive V905, while you should keep from the Avon Ice Touring ST, which drops completely, not least because the delete does not stand firmly on the rain-soaked roads.

While most of the test tires no problems, with to find a foothold in both snow and ice, is it just in the all-round properties, as the English weather and roads the requirements for, the worst tires fall through. They are simply unfit to drive on the wet road, which is the parameter that is weighted the highest.

- are subject to different requirements for winter tyres across Europe. Many places similar to winter, however, the Danish, and we are therefore in the FDM excited for that one in the test group have chosen to prioritize other things than just snow and ice, when you look at what makes winter tires good. This means that the test becomes far more useful in relation to the Danish situation, says Søren W. Rasmussen and adds:

- the Market for tyres are large and can easily seem daunting. Here is our test of a good guide that can help one to find the tire that best suits your needs and car. Most importantly, however, that you choose a tire that performs well on wet roads. In summary, it is a question of security.
