Using as a summer tire. Good traction on dry and wet pavement. Was on the car during light snow; it did okay, but not recommended. There's minimal noise, but the tire is still relatively new. Have not noticed any unusual wear. Cornering is stable. Pleasantly surprised with price/performance. If they last 25,000+/- at similar level of performance, I'll buy another set; they're easily as good as the Contis, Dunlops, and Nokians I've owned at a much lower price. Bought this tire (and a set of Enkei wheels from Tirerack came from the dealership when I purchased the car). Very pleased with Tirerack product and service. Recommended local installer was superb in every way.
