Initial Review, 800 Miles on Tires
December 02, 2012

I have to echo the positive comments of the last few previous reviewers. On mostly dry roads so far, I really can't tell much of an overall driving difference between these and the stock "3 season" Michelin Primacy's that I replaced. In fact, with a few extra PSI's in them, they actually are more road responsive, seem even quieter, extremely comfortable (for a snow tire) and straight as an arrow on the highway. Had a little snow (1"-2") a couple of days ago, and felt like I was driving on dry pavement. There might be a better pure winter tire for just exclusive snow traction, but I doubt if there's one with better combined winter tire characteristics. I've been driving for 30yrs, so I'm speaking from a lot of experience with various tire applications. Happy trails with these...assuming that the snow/ice traction will be as good as advertized.
