Top Nexen WinGuard Review

Given 49% while driving a Vauxhall Astra SRi (205/60 R16 H) on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
OK budget tyre for use under 4c.
Dry grip poor above 10c.
Snow grip better than a summer tyre, just.
Grip on ice average to poor.
Buy a mid range or premium tyre. If your looking for some decent winter performance.
I'm a little disappointed from their ice & snow performance.

Given 82% while driving a Honda CRV (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 6,000 average miles
Decided to fit these winter tyres for a trip to switzerland. Tested them in a very wet field before I left and was amazed how much better they gripped the the previous summer tyres. When I arived in switzerland the satnav took us over a snow covered mountain pass and despite stopping on a steep section when a car came the other way the tyres gripped almost as good as in the dry. Braking down the other side was also very confidence inspiring. The only issue i ever had was trying to set off uphill on sheet ice where chains would have helped. Also impressed with them at speed on the motorways in all conditions especially snow/slush/rain and particularly with how the car now deals with standing water in the UK. Quiet driving all round and good comfort and grip. All round very impressed with these for the price.
