Riken SNOWTIME B2 is an economy-class tyre optimized for day-to-day driving in the winter season. This model delivers a balanced performance, with maximum safety, and solid durability which makes it appeal to most winter drivers.

Riken SNOWTIME B2 has a tread which has been engineered to wear slowly and evenly and it achieves this by ensuring that the pressures acting on the tyre have been equalized as much as possible. This has a positive effect on safety as the tyre doesn't erode as quickly or become deformed during normal use.

Riken SNOWTIME B2 is built using a rubber material and this is defined by its durable and lightweight properties. Rolling resistance is reduced and this translates to less fuel being used and fewer CO2 emissions being released into the atmosphere. Furthermore, this rubber compound is resistant to mechanical damage and is fully-functional over a wide range of temperatures. By using a modernized rubber, the handling and stability are enhanced on winter roads.

Riken SNOWTIME B2 features a directional tread with has a number of grooves on the tyre surface to efficiently flush excess water, slush or snow from the tyre. This design is used to reduce the risk of aquaplaning and to ensure a good driving profile regardless of the weather conditions. Enlarged shoulder blocks give dynamic and secure driving on dry roads, and precise cornering and accurate handling. This model is a great solution for drivers who require short braking distances and safety and precise handling on winter roads.

Snowtime B2 Reviews

As expected, much better grip in the snow than the Pirelli summers they replaced. Pleasantly surprised that they are also quieter, and fuel economy has improved 5%. This is compared to Pirelli 16". I also ran Pirelli 17" summer previously and found the move to 16" summer improved ride quality and reduced noise as well, so with the move to 16" and winter the effects were cumulative
This is an update to my earlier review where I stated it was a relief to get the summer tires on. New rear shocks at 30K resolved the odd handling! The Riken's have been back on the car three times, once until June. I think the wet grip got better with a little wear and they are lasting very well. This year they were a joy to refit after removing noisy Nankang NSII tires, so much quieter and a relief to find it was not an issue with the car. they still have so much tread I might not bother changing for the summer.
