Informercials Full of Duds: Consumer Reports

Tested alternative: You'll have to spend some dough if you want winter traction. Michelin X-Ice XI 2 tires, with an 84 score and a $106 price tag, do an "excellent" job in the snow and braking on ice. Of course, $424 (for four tires) is a lot more than $19.95, but think of it this way: if you spend less on quick fixes that don't really work you'll soon have enough money to spend on the real deal. Plus, those tires will last you more than a few winters.

Tyre Grip only works for a mile, says Consumer Reports.
