I'm a 67yo retired COP. Saying this I still drive lika a COP, but I am driving a Kia Sportage. Nice running veh., but not a Corvette. So far I am extremely pleased with these tires. They gave me good handling & traction in snow when living in Maryland. Now in Myrtle Beach, SC I longer think of ice & snow. Wet weather traction is great, as is highway &...  Read More

My original tires were OEM Dunlop 245/40/R18 summer tires. The OEM 17 inch size is 235/45/R17, but I bought he slightly wider and tallerF245/45/R17 instead. The diameter and revolutions per mile is closer in the size I bought to the the original tires. From a performance point of view, these tires in 17 inch 45 series provide a softer ride than the 18 inch...  Read More

Living in upstate New York I wanted a tire that would be good in the snow. I purchased these tires last Wednesday, they were delivered the next day and I had them mounted on Saturday. Over the last three days I have driven through driving rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow mix, moderately deep snow and slick roads. Under all of these conditions the tires...  Read More

Great all around performer. Smooth, quiet ride, nice stiff sidewalls makes my truck ride all around much better. Stock Dunlops were a joke in comparison. Great in winter conditions. Snow flake rating and new compound deffinately is no lye. Alberta winter conditions are no problem for this tire so far.Brand new tire so I can't comment on wear yet. Overall...  Read More

Expanding on review above - Owners know the SC430 is great - but not a sports car. In fact it rides harshly in the city and soft on the highway, and you'd have to modify suspension from stock to fundamentally change that. So I've been trying to find the tire that makes the most of what the car is and isn't. Got the spare tire kit, got rid of the runflats,...

Tire handled great in summer, spring and fall driving conditions in Northern California. In icey road conditions and light snow the tire was good. Deep snow the tire was ok, but perhaps it was the lightness of the Honda Accord. I definately would have purchased another set but evidently this tire has been recalled for unknown reason and were not available.   Read More

Put these run flats on after I had put about 36000 on my OEM Continental tires that came with the car. Road noise was much better and handling was improved quite a bit. I do like the way my BMW rides on these. I would recommend getting a set!!   Read More

Tire rack timed out my review. Not going to retype the whole thing. These are the best snow tires I've ever had. Best tires I've ever had in snow and rain and I worked at Timberline Lodge for several years in addition to snow sports so I have plenty of experience driving in winter conditions and on many different tires.Drove 1600 miles and through the rain...  Read More

Put this on Labor Day weekend on my 2006 Azera. I've racked up 12,000 miles on them so far. Love these tires. They are incredible in the rain and going through ponding on roadways. I use this car to commute 110 miles a day to work. They have been great at road holding, corning, comfort and grip. This is a large high output V-6 front driver and though you can...  Read More

Though I absolutely love these tires on my VW Passat 4Motion wagon, they are completely different story on the Avalon. This is a large front drive high output V-6 sedan with a soft suspension. They handle just like the Michelin MVX4S that came on the car. Couldn't wait to get rid of the Michelins after 40,000 miles. Steering response with the Pure Contact is...  Read More

I live in Syracuse NY (just like Buffalo) Snow town USA. I purchased a set of 4 studded snow tires, after driving around on all season and I have to tell you the change was outstanding, no more white knuckle driving. These tires recently went through a snow storm, we are talking 6 to 8 drifts with a standard 3 to 4 mealy snow, the complete way to work. The...  Read More

I bought these tires because someone here compared them to Michelins. I'm so glad I did. When I drove on them for the first time I couldn't believe how quiet they are. My radio is still at the same level with no trouble hearing it and my gas mileage is still the same even with the aggressive treads pattern. I wanted to wait to write this review so I could...  Read More

My first review of a Jeep tire. Wow. Just a great reality tire for off road and on road with no real noise, great wear, and great snow traction. I plan to buy again.It took about 300 miles to break them in (molding or whatever), but even in the -15F week we had last winter they remained super soft and compliant. Their only possible weakness is I think they...  Read More

The wear on these tires is incredible! The snow/mud traction not so much. I do 99% of my driving on hard roads, so tread wear is more important than snow/mud worries but, I've got two boys with their own trucks that give me A LOT of grief when they can go places on the farm that I can't do to lack of traction.   Read More

This tire provide great dry and wet traction in winter. The dry and wet traction is as good as high performance all season tires. It is quite comfortable and provide good fuel economy. It is a little noisy but not very bad. For slush, ice or light snow covered road it is excellent, provide great grip that you can travel with confidence. When snow is deeper,...  Read More
