V-shaped tread design works with high drainage groove to drain snow, slush and water quickly. Optimized direction of sipes maximize the tires contact with the road surface and delivers outstanding traction and control in all winter driving conditions. Special winter tread compound offers performance driving.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

16.06.2020fromRichardM Unfortunately we had no snow to test these tyres to experience they’re real potential but for. price they’re not bad at all tyres. Soft compound is predicting good grip on snow and ice but since we had very moderate winter, I can’t really rate them properly.
The only downside of the tyre is it’s very soft sidewall which gave me a sensation of instability but because it was a warm winter I was driving a lot more aggressive than I would have been in proper winter conditions
31.03.2020frompaul aspinall the tyres were only fitted two weeks ago so cannot give true comments bought for the expected snow that has`nt come
26.03.2020fromDobrin Dimitrov I do a lots of miles driving in the city and I can say those tyres a very good.
15.10.2019fromEl Bongo The vehicle came with Continental Contract Sport 5. Nice tyre, however the Goodride 608 (a winter tyre) have lasted longer. I'm happy to push the car in the west and dry, grip is always there, they are responsive and always bite the road well. A little more slippy with hard acceleration, but seems balanced for 180hp. They were used across the summer, so are a bit knackered now the grip is falling apart, but that's more my fault than the winter tyre. All in all very happy, they have never missed a beat, and for a fraction of the cost, plus they work in the snow. Underrated and recommended.
