Initial Review, 1200 Miles on Tires

Might revise my review following winter but this tire is the best compromiser of any I've driven, save maybe Pilot Sport Cups. There's just no big weakness. Not sure about wear yet. Predictable at limits, be them high on a smooth dry road or very low on a sheet of ice. Not too noisy and no tramlining issues.
An unexpected downside due to great snow grip is that it's much more difficult to slide around in blizzard-abondoned parking lots. Have to have much more speed and bigger inputs to completely break traction. Just means its time to step up the game!
