Are these tyres usable in winter?

I have them on both of mine but don't use them in winter. I would think that the Michelin pilot or similar would be a better bet

Yes they are but flakey on greasy type surfaces. Again in the wet you donít want to go chasing land speed records. Once you are aware of this and you drive accordingly they are fine.

ADVAN Neova AD08 R tires must be serviced, stored and driven at temperatures above -10 degrees Celsius (14 degrees Fahrenheit) to maintain its performance and avoid tire damage.

Have currently AD08Rs fitted and to give you a rough idea what to expect... a while back ago I fitted a few goodies against oil surges (baffled sump, kiggley pressure reg, etc.) did some testing in an isolated part of town on a small round about (idea was to try and get the oil slushing or lying on one side of the pan).

Without going too deep into the maths.. around 10C I could go around the roundabout with 40-45 kmhr without the backend or the frontend loosing grip. In the dry albeit 20C, I could hold easily 65-70 kmhr.

So you could say in colder (and wet conditions) you can see a approx. 30% reduction in grip.

I have run these tyres since my built engine and they are great but do not like the wet which is fare as a fast road tyre. I drive only in the dry but two years in a row its been damp and some rain which makes grip with over 450bhp fun

Great tyre for the Evo but I would not use AD08R in winter.

They need heat to work, the roads are to cold.

Much better to switch to a good set of winters

Yes they are.

I use mine all year around as they are all I use, they arenít very good in the cold or wet just donít be a idiot and you will be fine.

I have 4 set of rims and 3 of them have ad08r tyres on.
