The Details

With temperatures this week I’ve it well to get winter tyres to the Lexus. I’d actually it a few weeks ago but as often seems to be the there was a delay in getting of the right tyres for our Lexus. But there’s been no snow or ice so far and the has been fine on its standard Bridgestone Potenza RE050A .

However, I’m very to have now got the winter tyres Especially with snow next week and a several up north planned. I’m pleased that I haven’t had to different wheels fitted to the Unlike two years ago when I had to the 20-inch wheels on the Audi A6 I was for some very plain alloys .

That said, I do think the would look quite with a set of black steel on. It also means that if you do end up into something like a the damage won’t be as costly as it to an alloy wheel. However, year I’ve been to keep the same wheels on and changed the tyres.

So now the GS450h is running on Pirelli Serie II tyres with R19 on the front and 265/35 R19 on the back.

have an asymmetric tread with the inner part to expel water and the outer with its more rigid and blocks, designed to give levels of grip in snow. So now actually hoping we have so I can test them out. The also has a snow setting for the so it could turn out to be pretty when the cold weather sets in.

Of course winter and tyres are a common look on the where in many countries tyres are compulsory.

Considering the they make to safety it a lot of sense and seeing the chaos even a few centimetres of snow us here in the UK, I think we should a similar law. True the expense of another set of tyres, but you have winter tyres on, summers aren’t being So you’re just spreading the covered over two sets of

What I have noticed is how quieter the Pirelli winters are to the Bridgestones and although they quite as grippy in high corners, they’re still impressive for a winter tyre. The is ever so slightly better So overall I’m very so far.

Although I’ll to wait for snow and ice before I a final verdict.

It’s not just the snow Below 7C winter tyres are effective. With normal the rubber loses its flexibility in the It#8217;s all to do with the compound of the Cold weather tyres a higher ratio of natural and silica in the compound which stiffen up as much as synthetic in cold conditions.

Therefore the is more flexible and able to like a tyre should. tyres simply go hard in the temperatures.

Aside from the I’ve topped up the washer in the Lexus. I’ve now invested in a so I don’t leak it all over the bay. Seeing as the car is only two it only needed a small Aside from that else appears to be as it should, not you can really tell given how the GS bay is basically a large bit of plastic.

So winter here we come!
