Initial Review, 1,200 Miles on Tires
December 29, 2009

Update: after a few road trips and some local driving in every condition except smooth ice and really deep snow I'm still very pleased. To reach the main road I climb a half-mile hill that must be near a 10% grade as it turns back and forth- too steep to climb on a bicycle unless you're an accomplished rider with the right gearing. Not one RPM of wheel slip that I can detect. No issues with noise on dry pavement. I've been driving very closely to exactly how I drive in the summer and the car hasn't slid or twitched once and every takeoff from a stop has been with fine traction. Our roads are usually clear within a few days of a storm and I really didn't want to buzz along on knobby tires most of the winter; this tire is surpassing expectations so far.
