Winter Tire Test

The first week of August Tire Rack tested the new winter tires for 2010 on the local ice skating rink. This year's line-up for testing included the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70, a rework of the WS60 with deeper tread for improved deep snow traction and the Continental ExtremeWinterContact with improver rubber compound to operate better on sheer ice. Also tested were the Michelin X-Ice Xi2, a solid performer since being introduced and the Dunlop Graspic DS-3 that trailed the field but still offered great traction.

Official results from the 2010 test will be available in the next few weeks.
