Are the RS-A's better in the cold weather than the stock GXP tires? Maybe I'll use them as snowtires
In a word... NO.
But they would make a nice old timey swingset for the kids.
That's suprising since the RS2's are meant to be summer only tires
They are rated to be better in the cold weather than the GXP tires. I guess it is personal opinion on whether or not they are.
MY personal opinion (since I've owned both an N/A Sol and a GXP through two winters each) is that the N/A tires will have better cold TEMPERATURE performance than the GXP summer only tires, as the summer only tires get really hard and slip a lot when the temp drops too low.
I wouldn't necessarily rate them any better for snow performance, though.
