The 'state of the art' winter/snow tyre is the ContiWinterCont TS 830 P - in my opinion.

Just wait for another 40 or more folks to tell you their favourite. :P

Hi,

It really depends on the budget you have, what kind of performances you are looking for etc. A tyre might be very good for one person with his car and use, but not working for another one... Also, what dimension are you looking for?

Most of the good brands are very close on performance so my formula is anything with 4mm+ tread left on it and not made in China - some Chinese tyres on test fall a long way behind the rest of the pack.
Vredestein's are judged by some to perform better later in their life than Dunlop SP Winter Sports which I use.
The Dunlops are the only Winter tyre I've tried (on 2 cars) and they have been very effective over 2 winters.

Nokians on mine. Use them in proper Finnish winters and have found them superb.

I have used Yokohama W-Drive for the last two winters. They grip very well and after 14,000 miles of use I still have over 4mm tread left.
