In Slovakia, winter tires are mandatory whenever there is a continuous layer of snow, ice or icicles on the road.

Nevertheless, there are still quite a few daredevils who ignore this obligation and try to ride on summer tires in December. It is definitely not worth it. Not only that they risk a fine of up to EUR 60 from the police, but above all they endanger the safety of themselves and other road users. At the same time, obtaining a quality winter car ride does not have to be so expensive at all.

Motoring magazine Car picture has prepared a large test of winter tires, which can serve as a useful tool when deciding to buy winter tires. It proves that although premium brands ended up in the first places, they will certainly not be ashamed of even cheaper brands.

Experts from Auto Bild tested the 205/55 R16 H size, which is suitable for brands such as the Ford Focus, Opel Astra or Volkswagen Golf, but also for older middle-class vehicles.

At the beginning of the test, they anonymously purchased 50 different winter tires of the selected size and subjected them to the first safety test – they measured the braking distance of the vehicle during full braking from a speed of 80 km / h on a wet surface.

Only 35 models passed through this sieve, which they tested on a snowy road at a speed of 50 km / h. The final order was finally decided by a combination of both measurements, ie both wet and snow.

The winners are clear! The article continues on the next page.
