Winter is coming, and that means ice, slush, and snow are coming with it. While some might welcome these elements, they are known to make driving more difficult than it needs to be as tires can strong to grip slick, frozen roads. Fortunately, winter tires are designed to remain flexible in winter weather and the Winter I'Pike (RW09) from Hankook does that and more for drivers of European vans. 3D grooves within the Winter I'Pike (RW09) are designed to provide consistent grip on snow covered roads, while small slits within the center groove allow for shorter braking distances on ice. Able to be pinned with up to six rows of studs to further enhance performance, the Winter I'Pike (RW09)'s shoulder block design is meant to strengthen traction on snow covered roads. All of this is to say that the Winter I'Pike (RW09) offers strong performance in ice, snow, and lower temperatures, which is backed by the tire's Three Peak Mountain Snowflake certification.
