Just an initial opinion in the first week of owning these tires. Initially I thought I was going to just garage the Stang and go with another option for my winter driving. But I always intended to use this as a daily driver so after reading that the Benz and BMW crews were having good reviews on this tire on all their RWD cars and a few Porsche owners a Corvette Owner and Even a Mustang owner on the predecessor to the Serie II Scottozero.. I sprung for them. And Well so far I'm not disappointed. Already had them out on a light dusting and then some sleet the next day. And this model of tire stuck and performed like It was any dry road for the Summer tires. In fact these tires are possibly one of just a few with a factory speed rating to match driving in many high performance vehicles. Most seem to cap at 119MPH and really when you are more about enjoying the driving experience in the vehicle you bought to match your desire to step on the throttle. Well these bad boys seem to deliver. Although I've read good reviews in heavier snow, I've yet to experience that. So I'm kinda looking forward to it. I hope they won't disappoint. I'll update as soon as I do hit deeper snow conditions. For the moment I feel confident in colder temperatures taking the tight turns with these tires. And as for the noise complaints. I drive a loud as -------- Muscle car with a totally custom exhaust. And even if I didn't have the exhaust, the cabin of the car is sufficiently noise dampened to block out the road noise. So who really cares these tires are noisy. If you can hear them... maybe its time to get a current car?
