Initial Review, 300 Miles on Tires
March 25, 2011

I had the Winterforce tire from Firestone on a dedicated set of rims. I had Blizzaks in the past, but couldn't pass the price up on the Winterforce tires. After 25k of use, I pulled them and replaced them with the Blizzak WS70's. Wow! Much, MUCH quieter and smoother. Traction on dry and wet roads is better. I haven't tested them in the snow; however, if they are like the ones I had in the past, they will be great.

The winterforce tires wore evenly and I believe I had another 15k left in them. They were just terribly loud and not smooth. Further wet and dry traction was not good.

Spring is about here, so the summer tires/rims go back on soon. I'll be anxious to try these out again next winter.
