PREMIUM VS BUDGET - WINTER TYRES
Wednesday, 6th May 2020
Goodyear put two sets of tyres to the test on a track aimed to mimic the effect of stopping on ice. One car was fitted with premium Goodyear winter tyres, while the other was fitted with a set of budget tyres.
There is often a considerable difference between premium winter tyres and budget winter tyres. In the clip, both cars attempt an emergency stop on the icy surface. The car fitted with premium Goodyear UltraGrip Performance tyres stops much sooner than the car fitted with budget winter tyres – a 44 metre difference in stopping distance!
Winter tyres really do make all the difference!
