Initial Review, 1,000 Miles on Tires
Well, I wanted to buy another set of Dunlop Winter Sport M3's but they are not availabkle anywhere - only reason I can guess is that the sunami screwed up this summer's shipments... so I needed something else. After considerable research on both Tirerack and Consumer Reports websites, I just bought a set of 4 of these. Despite misgivings about the unaggressive tread design, I have read nothing but favourable reviews. My summer tires are Michelin Primacy MXV4s and are also V rated. In just switching tires recently there has not yet been any real snow or ice to test them in, but there has been slush and rain. Snow is coming soon - an inevitability here in Canada. My initial impressions? Well, the tread doesn't look very aggressive (what you would think a winter tire should look like), but the other reviews said `not to worry'. The overall ratings are quite impressive and hard to ignore.
