Initial Review, 6,000 Miles on Tires
This is my second winter season on these tires. I usually put them on in December and take them off in the early part of March. Last year, we did not have much snow in California so it was hard to decide if I liked them or not. This year, we got a lot of snow in California so I got lots of time driving in the snow. I made several trips up to Kirkwood Ski Resort on State Route 88 in heavy snow and icy conditions. 88 is a very dangerous road to drive in the winter and I have seen several vehicles run off into snow banks, mostly due to excessive speed in chain control areas.
