Winter Testing at the Arctic Circle: Studdable Winter / Snow (05:06)

Category: Winter / Snow Tires

Once again from Northern Sweden, home to a number of great winter test sites and plenty of snow and ice, we tested a tire's ability to accelerate, brake and drive through the Arctic snow and on ice.

This round included several Studdable Winter / Snow tires, each featuring deep treads molded in aggressive patterns designed to dig their way through the snow while including molded-in holes to insert optional metal studs for enhanced ice traction. We compared the General Altimax Arctic (both unstudded and studded) along with unstudded Firestone Winterforce and Pirelli Winter Carving Edge tires.
