Description

The EUROWINTER HS449 raises the bar for the winter performance segment. With a new silica enriched compound, the HS449 is a blend of winter capability and dry performance. The directional tread design features an optimal amount of void ratio for grip in wet and slushy conditions as well as snow evacuation. 3D Canyon siping is utilized in the tread for ice grip and wet performance to help the tire maintain contact with the road in severe conditions. For those looking for performance in winter with dependability in the dry, the HS449 hits the mark.

  • The improved silica rubber mix ensures optimum road holding
  • Excellent grip and first-class braking properties
  • Improved driving comfort thanks to noise minimization
  • Excellent directional stability

What is bad?
Snow/Ice Performance
I've had these tires for three years already. The snowfalls are rare in our area but I have the experience of driving in snow and it's not great. The tires were awfully slipping and now I can't get up the tiny hill even!!! I'm very disappointed! Also they are very noisy.

I wanted to buy winter tires that would work well in our place. After a long search I chose these ones. And I'm very pleased. The traction is great in the wet and there isn't hydroplaning but in the dry everything is ok. We had some snowfalls and the car moved without difficulties, the traction was wonferful. It felt almost as if I was driving a different car. They do a great job in snow and ice. I've had only one season with them and it seems to me that the treadwear is great too.
