In the second part of tests of this season not spiked tires of the Scandinavian type of different price segments are compared. Nokian and Continental which this year both have released on novelty, thus that their models of the previous generation also showed very much good results traditionally are considered as one of leaders of this segment.

Bridgestone, Goodyear, Hankook, Michelin and Pirelli participate in the test with already familiar tires, and tests say that all of them are also capable to show excellent indicators. At the same time, at least in separate disciplines, new tires became more successful.

The Japanese Yokohama is known first of all for the summer UHP tires, and also winter tires of the European type. At the same time for northern winter other materials and technical solutions are necessary, and meanwhile this company in tests of tires for similar conditions does not apply for victory. At the same time Yokohama has definitely not the worst tires from available.

China is represented this time by the Linglong company which participated in tests with variable success before. According to experts though the Chinese tires become more and more qualitative in recent years, to products from the leading brands it it is still far.
