Were yokohoma w drive c902 in their test? It's my third winter with these tyres. I can't really rate them as I've never had any other winter tyre but they do the job!

Which? tested 8 common tyre sizes - 12/13 tyres in each size. Yokohamas weren't tested for 225/45/17's, but were included in the 185/65/R15 tests (scored 62% behind the Best Buy which scored 67% - so mid range for that size)

I have them fitted on our Aygo. Cost £42 each from Oponeo, plus £25 to have all 4 fitted/balanced at local tyre depot.
