Haven't really had enough miles to rate these tires fairly, so the rating is based upon the short time we've had them on the car. We have had a slight bit of adverse weather, some ice, some snow, but not really a great chance yet to check them in any kind of serious accumulation. I typically run Goodyear Eagle Ultra Grip's for the winter season, but was required to go this route due to funds. So far, my wife and I have found the Dunlops to ride comfortably and perform very well. We both love driving, and purchased our Pontiac G8 to enjoy our time on the road. We tend to push our cars just a tad harder that the average driver might, so cornering and steering response are a big deal. These tires respond very well considering what we like to ask them to do. The Dunlops are definately helping us to enjoy the winter driving experience.
