Default Winter Tires: Renault Captur

What tires are you running on your Captur for winter weather?
What brand, model and size?

How are you liking those Nokian tires?
I keep hearing more about them.
I've always used Bridgestone Blizzaks and find it hard to part with them

Is it possible to just put chains on your tires instead? Are they any cheaper than winter tires?

Changing tires is crappy. Wish we didn't have to do it.

Chains might be more effective, sometimes it's a personal preference, but as always check with your local laws and regulations to see what and what not is allowed.

surprised the WS60 stopped so much farther compared to the xice3.
the winterforce is a good tire. problem is that its only good in the snow

sucks pretty much in everything else.

It still is a very good tire.
Yeah you can save up to 15 feet in stopping range by going with the winner here but with good driving habits you'll be fine even with the cheapest tire.
