Wasn’t a particularly severe Winter and noticed no trouble at all, but with all that weight at the front and the low down torque of an electric motor you would expect good traction.

If they are 16" id buy them off you if you change. I'm happy with mine.

Now it's winter, I have different tyres on (Dunlop Winter Sport 5 205/50 R17 M+S), but we had some heavy snow falling last night and it's the first time I've driven the Niro on uncleared roads. I thought of this thread as the front of the car continually let go quite easily whilst cornering (particularly roundabouts, even at low speed and without braking in the corner). Subjectively I had to take it much easier than in my old Merc (Pirelli Sottozero Winter 210 Serie II MO 205/55 R16), even though I felt I had good grip when only lightly turning the wheel. It will probably be another 3 years before I change my winter tyres, so I won't have much chance of a comparison.

I am changing my Qashqai to a Niro 2 1st Feb. My Qashqai came with Michelin Energy Savers and I was only getting 10,000 miles out of a front pair, which is terrible. Manufactures put these on to give their adverts the best MPG. I changed to Toyo tyres which gave 15,000.
Gone are the days when I was a student 40 years ago when my Mini front tyres gave 20,000!!!

Energy savers on my Ceed lasted 40k miles front and rear. I was well happy with them, and lasting well on my Niro too.
