Pirelli Winter Carving Edge
Initial Review: 60 miles on tires
December 14, 2012

Initial impression, which I will update... The tire, as other WRX owners have said, a noticeable difference in handling! However, it is a winter tire with lots of siping for hard snow/ice grip..it can't be as stiff as the original Dunlops. I also can't wait for my snow test! The ride is quiet..I'm running them at 42 PSI front, 40 PSI rear....seems like at that pressure you get just enough tread on the road..about 1/2 inch from the shoulder....

Purchased them on a set of TireRack private label wheels....Sport Edition. CANNOT BEAT THE PRICE and the wheel seems to be nicely finished! Seems like a lot of wheel weights which makes me wonder about the manufacturing...but..the balance seems perfect..up to 75.

TireRack is great...got them the NEXT DAY...mounted and balanced. I'll update this in a few weeks after some cold weather/snow miles!
