These tires are really, really nice. I intentionally purchased them in October to have a fresh set of tires for the wet winter weather. Living in Atlanta and routinely traveling GA400 and I85/I75 during adverse conditions, I wanted a set of great tires. These tires fit the bill perfectly and deliver great performance. I traveled the 2013 winter snow shutdown in Atlanta and the tires were fantastic. They are wearing very well and would definitely recommend them and purchase another set.
