Initial Review, 1,000 Miles on Tires
December 03, 2013

I was going to wait until the snow flew to review this winter tire but I'm so happy about my choice that I figured I'd give an initial pre-winter conditions review. Let's just say the only area I dinged them was noise level and if 9.5 was an option I would've chosen it but in whole numbers I had to go 9. This tire is just awesome especially considering how much sidewall I added vs. my 19" OEs. Very stable, no squirm and if I could have rated wet traction an 11 I would have- simply phenomenal tire maybe the best I've owned (Pirelli, Nokian included) bar none but let's see how they handle snow and the way this tire handles I'm not expecting miracles there (not super gummy like a blizzak) but for my less than severe needs could possibly be the perfect winter tire- one that I'd be completely happy running all year. With AWD I imagine I'll have plenty of grip to get to where I need to go safely unlike many ppl with AWD who believe they're invincible in a snowstorm with crummy A/S's when nothing could be further from the truth.
