Re­sults by cat­e­gory

LOOK across our re­sults ta­bles, and you can see our tyres are di­vided into groups. Toyo and Kumho were closely matched, but were a step, al­beit a small one, be­hind the best per­form­ers here.

There was even less be­tween the Falken and Hankook as both fo­cused on wet and dry grip at the ex­pense of snow per­for­mance. Nexen proved its range re­vamp has put it at the head of the Far East­ern tyre mak­ers.

Goodyear and Nokian could barely be sep­a­rated across our 15 tests, and are the stand­out per­form­ers with a win­ter focus. The win­ning Miche­lin works suf­fi­ciently well on snow to the point where it matches some win­ter tyres, but its abil­ity in the wet and dry makes it best suited to UK con­di­tions and re­duces the com­pro­mises in­evitable in a tyre used all year round.
