Cool Winter tires.....Yea baby!



Bought a set of Cooper Wintermasters in the stock size. Since I got these we have had freezing rain, and about 10 - 15 cm of snow.</P>


On dry road they feel kinda strange, and are very loud, I guess the HUGE treads cause that. On ice and snow these tires are awesome. Acceleration and breaking are excellent and they break away very predictably in the corners. The car is very easy to "dance" around the bendies, and I can place it within a few inches.</P>

The price was very reasonable, I paid cad$390 on the road. That price included the $160 trade in on the RE92's.</P>

Here is a link to the relevant page on the cooper site <A HREF="http://www.coopertires.com/tire_locator/tiredata.asp?tireID=175&amp;tiretype=P">http://www.coopertires.com/tire_locator/tiredata.asp?tireID=175&amp;tiretype=P</A></P>

Yo RageHard,

How ya' been laddie? Haven't seen you post on the board for awhile.

Are you going to stud those winter tires? Figured you might think about it living in Winterpeg and all.

Cheers,

Nah not gunna stud them. I'm happy with them as they are, I've been having great fun dusting all the sport ute's and Talonís from the lights. And going around all the cornerís slideways!

Haven't been on the board much of late, just switched jobs. Hopefully now I will be able to afford some more parts hehe.

Putting studs on tires that are going to be mainly used for city driving isn't a good idea.

The only time you'd really want to consider them if you plan on going to places with really poor roads!

Studs are like ball bearings on snow/iceless roads. hehe

The only tires ive been able to find that can actually be studded are the Nokians. I don't think the Coopers can even be studded...

The guy offered to stud them so I hope they are studable!

I dont think studs are allowed in the city here anyway.

I have the same tires, and mine are studded. We don't get a whole lot of snow around here any more, but we do get lots of ice and slush and they rock for that.

BTW, studs are legal in every province in Canada except Ontario. Saw it on a CBC special last year.

Jeff,

Saw the same program. It was on CBC Venture. They tested some All-Season, Winter, and Studded Winter tires on a Volvo AWD Wagon and the Studed Winter tires had 50% shorter stopping distance on shear ice at 50kph. Regular Winter tires were somewhere like 75% of the All-Seasons. BTW, the Volvo had ABS brakes.

I would definately like to get studs put on my winter tires (if I had some).
