Autocar winter tyre reviews:
1. Goodyear UltraGrip Performance+
The Performance+ dominates our snow tests with an almost two per cent advantage over the next best, stablemate Dunlop. This is the best option if you prioritise quiet running, because it wins the cabin noise test.
2. Continental WinterContact TS 860
The WinterContact TS 860 has been something of a phenomenon in our winter tests, having won the last two. It just fails to make a hat-trick but it comes mighty close, and remains a great tyre. There is very little between our winner and the WinterContact in the wet, where both are the best in the field. Noise levels are highlighted as a downside.
3. Michelin Alpin 6
Itís less sure-footed in the snow, where it lacks the traction of the best when applying lock; in the dry it is close to the best. It is a long way off the winning Nokian at the pumps, but then most were. More problematic is that it is the noisiest tyre on test.
4. Dunlop Winter Sport 5
Its success is built in Finland on the snow, where itís second only to its test-winning stablemate Goodyear and its brand-new Performance+. So itís no surprise that it takes the handling win and podiums in the rest of the tests. It drops to fifth in the key wet tests.
5=. Vredestein Wintrac Pro
Strong in wet and dry, but snow grip and fuel economy need work. Br> 5=. Falken Eurowinter HS0. It tops only the Toyo in the snow where it has a good balance but lacks bite compared with the best. Itís back at the rear of the pack in the dry, feeling soft around the handling track although its time is close to the best. However the elephant in the room is fuel economy. It was poor in the last test, but itís further off the pace here, using around seven per cent more fuel than the Nokian.
7. Nokian WR Snowproof
Nokianís previous forte has been snow grip, but here it only manages fourth, yet the margin is smaller.
8. Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3
there is precious little between it and the fifth-placed Vredestein. Impressive result from an ageing design, but newer rivals are a step ahead.
9. Hankook i*cept RS2
This tyre was runner-up in our last two winter tests, so itís a mystery why it drops to one place off the bottom this year. In the wet, it finishes last. 10. Toyo Snowprox S954
It is lacking when compared to newer competitors. Across all snow tests it is more than 10 per cent behind the leader.

Covid 19 FAQs

Symptoms of COVID-19 appear within two to 14 days after exposure and include fever, cough, runny nose and difficulty breathing.
People infected with this virus should receive supportive care such as rest, fluids and fever control, to help relieve symptoms.

For severe cases, treatment should include care to support vital organ functions.
  • COVID-19 may be spread through the airborne route, meaning that tiny droplets remaining in the air could cause disease in others
  • Flu can be spread by an infected person for several days before their symptoms appear
  • Both can cause fever, cough, body aches, fatigue
  • Both can be spread from person to person through droplets in the air from an infected person coughing, sneezing or talking
  • Neither virus is treatable with antibiotics, which only work on bacterial infections
  • Both may be treated by addressing symptoms, such as reducing fever.
  • Both may be prevented by thorough hand washing, coughing into the crook of your elbow, staying home when sick and limiting contact with people who are infected
