Initial Review, 5,000 Miles on Tires
April 12, 2014

I installed those tires on my CC for the New England winter. I have only good things to say about those tires. Handling is really good (probably better than some all seasons tires), snow traction is excellent and trade wear appear much better than expected. The rubber is extremely tender even at cold temperature which gives amazing grip in cold weather. You might want to avoid driving those in the summer as high temperatures will eat the tire. The gas mileage appears slightly lower than all season tires (0.5 to 1mpg less). I incidentally used the same tires on my Civic 07 and BMW 325i so this is my third set. Tires work great on all cars (although very different handling style).
You can t go wrong with those tires. Will buy again.
