Summer vs winter tyre tést
For me the surprise was how góód summer rubber is braking on dry cold tarmac and the explanation holds water too (pun intended).
In temperate and warmer climates, the % of wet roads during the colder spells is the crux.
Where I live the 80% better braking condition dureing the coldest months have wiped any thoughts of winter rubber from my mind.
This observed, common sense concerning the properties of the rubber fitted remains crucial regardless of the type.
