Well it looks like the early prediction of a snow free winter was wrong.
The Faulken Eurowinter tyre should help you on frozen and snow covered roads.
This is a high-end winter tyre that featues "Miura-Ori" sD sipe technology along with a 4D Nano Design compound with stiffer tread blocks.
Or to simplify; it is much better in the winter than standard tyres keeping you and your passengers safer because the breking and grip is better.
