Treading on Thin Ice

Today I tested the following tires at our local ice rink:

As I expected, the LM-60 did not provide the same level of stopping, starting and cornering traction as the others.  Since it is a performance snow tire it gives up some ice and snow traction in favor of handling.  This type of tire would be good for those that receive infrequent snow or drive on roads that are often plowed.   

The WS-60 was the easiest to get rolling with very good cornering and braking traction.  It also didn't engage the traction control as often as the other tires did. 

The Continental was the next best followed by the Dunlop.  

It looks like the Bridgestone puts the competition on ice again!
