Five of the Best Winter Tyres for 2015


Hankook Winter iCept RS

Hankook Winter iCept RS

The Hankook Winter iCept RS winter tyre excels with slush and offers a decent level of wet and snow control. During Auto Express's winter tyre tests, the Hankook Winter iCept RS came first place for slushplaning, first place for straight aquaplaning, first place for curved aquaplaning, and narrowly missed out on a top three place for snow braking, snow circle, and snow handling tests.

The downside to this tyre is rolling resistance; it grabbed last place here, and as such fuel economy will suffer with this tyre. The Hankook Winter iCept RS is also not particularly great in the wet, coming seventh place for both wet braking and wet handling. If you're after ultimate slush control though you can't go wrong with this tyre.

Overall, the Hankook Winter iCept RS is the slush king. It's also good on the snow but it isn't particularly special in the wet or the dry. As such, there are better all-rounder's you can buy but with an average tyre price of £90 the Hankook Winter iCept RS is a tempting proposition; if you can grab a bargain on a set of these you will be set for winter.
