Finally got to use the new rubber in single digit temps and on snow/ice yesterday. Amazing. I felt comfortable going close to the speed limit as others were crawling along and spinning out and fishtailing. Stopping is impressive on snow/ice. Stopping distances and acceleration are comparable to that of dry warm pavement! Now I just hope everyone in Colorado will get snow tires so we can all go the same speed. ;)

Just had these put on. I found some snow/ice/dirt to test their traction; it was about 35ยบ outside. I was pleasantly surprised. The allroad accelerated and braked nearly as hard as on dry pavement with these tires. Road noise @ highway speeds of 90+ were similar to my old Continental ContiProContacts. Looking forward to testing them further in the mountains this weekend.
