2. Goodyear 4Sea­sons Gen-2

Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

OUT­GO­ING win­ner Goodyear has to set­tle for sec­ond place here, but this is still a class act.

It was marginally the most ef­fec­tive tyre in the snow tests and felt very se­cure on the han­dling track. It also proved best in brak­ing and trac­tion.

Un­like some ri­vals, it man­aged to main­tain a good per­for­mance in both deep and shal­low wa­ter and was best of the rest af­ter the Cross­cli­mate across all the wet tests.

It was less as­sured in the dry where it was a touch off the best around the han­dling cir­cuit; it felt very much like a win­ter tyre, lack­ing sharp­ness and feeling slow to re­spond. De­spite this, its lap time was only a sec­ond off that of the win­ning Miche­lin.

Brak­ing was less good, but it was still one of the bet­ter per­form­ers.

At the pumps the 4Sea­sons again demon­strated that when it comes to com­bin­ing wet grip and fuel econ­omy Goodyear/dun­lop has the edge.

“It was the most ef­fec­tive in snow and also good in the wet”

Goodyear was at its best on snow, and on straight aqua­plan­ing
