Initial Review, 500 Miles on Tires
December 14, 2013

I have only put a few hundred miles on these tires but have been through 1 heavy wet snowfall and now a larger snowfall with deep, light snow and ice. The tires have made my E Class feel solidly planted in snowy weather. The traction control has yet to kick in even with heavy throttle starts - the car just goes. Steering in snow/icy conditions is very stable and direct and stopping is effortless and the ABs doesn't activate. Dry grip is good although the tires do make the car feel a bit numb. The only time I felt a loss of traction was during heavy acceleration on wet pavement.

I have run Blizzaks (didn't like them in deep snow) and GoodYear which I loved, but since GoodYear doesn't make my tire size in UltraGrips, I decided to try these. They are so good I bought a set for my much larger S Class and cannot wait to se how they behave on the larger car.
