I've a combination of Goodyear EfficientGrip and Michelin Pilot Sports.

The Goodyears seem to last and grip well, and seem to have a low rolling resistance.

They are also by far the worst tyre I have ever used in snow. On any car (I've been driving over 20 years). Absolutely no grip whatsoever (yes, I know they are not winter tyres).

The Michelins do everything the Goodyears do but better but probably have a higher rolling resistance and dont last as long. They are also night and day better in the snow.

Hence I've now relegated my Goodyears to my non-driven (rear) wheels.

I've also a dedicated set of 16" steelies with winter tyres.

I have to agree the F1s are useless in snow! Fortunately, I have a 4x4 also!

+2 goodyears are crap in the snow.
The conti sc3 were brilliant in snow for a summer tyre.
Brilliant in the wet and excellent in the heat.
But noisy and didnt last.

Im getting more and more convinced on the merits of the sc5s to be honest.

Got 25K out of the last set and hope the same with those durable rubber.
Michelin Pilot Sports maybe ultimately a little grippier but go off quicker.
Check out ATS for discount of 15% for 2 or 25% for 4 tyres plus Free safety pack(£40) and vouchers for 12 months of car washes at ARC or IMO.
