I have 18,000 miles on my Sonic LT with the 1.4 turbo and a six speed manual. Fun little car that gets well over 30 mpg around town. The car came with Hankook Optimo tires. The Hankooks were the worst tire I have ever had on any car. It was down right scary to drive in the snow. I put these Eagle Sports on the car on Saturday, and its is like a completely different car in the snow. It's no longer scary to drive. These tires may even be better in the snow than the F1 all season I have on my G8 GT. Very happy with these tires. I see the traction control light come on a fraction of what I had been seeing, even on the wet roads. I will give an update once I drive in other conditions...but since I bought these tires because of issues with the snow, and they fixed that issue, I'm ecstatic!
