Initial Review, 4,000 Miles on Tires
This tire has great traction and stability in dry and rainy conditions. But in snow and especially just a LITTLE ice they are absolutely terrible!! Unfortunately, these are on our family vehicle which my wife mostly drives. We will not take it out in the snow (which we get our fair share during winter) if we can avoid it. 3 growing children and I'd rather take my F-150 2wd supercab (not crew) with the kids scrunched in the back seat than in our roomy wagon ONLY because of the lack of traction in the snow. We've never had any problems with previous tires on this car (109k+ miles) like we have with the ENVigors in snow. Most of the year these tires are great just not in winter. I would only recommend these tires on a car that won't be driven in snow or icy conditions. If we lived in the South I would absolutely love these.
