Initial Review, 4,000 Miles on Tires
February 10, 2011

These came on my certified pre-owned Audi A4. The dealer installed them prior to delivery. Maybe it's the Quattro system on my car, but I had zero trouble driving on inch-thick ice and snow at moderate highway speeds (50 mph). I was very surprised at this, as these tires do not make obvious claims about being good in snow/ice by the way the tread pattern was designed. They were a little noisy when brand-new, but they seem to have gotten quieter and smoother after initial break-in. I think a set of Continental ExtremeContact DWS will be in order next time around. I had those on my old BMW and they were AMAZING, but I would not be opposed to having these Hankooks again. I already have a giant screw in one, so it's likely ruined. I recommend road hazard tire coverage if you live in Atlanta, lots of rubbish in the roads here.
