Initial Review, 3000 Miles on Tires
I gave these tires a dry traction rating of 9. I am not sure how much of the performance is related to MINI and how much is related to Continental but I go screaming around 270-degree on ramp and there is no slip or noise. I take turns much faster than I did with my Impreza and BMW 330Ci /w Sport Package. I have not had a surprise when running at high speed in the wet and so far have not experienced any hydroplaning. We had over a foot of snow (Colorado Powder) and I drove around the block plowing with front bumper and all was OK until there ice below the snow and I got stuck. They are marginally acceptable for a thin layer of packed snow but not ice. Fortunately in Denver we have really good snow removal and the sun melts the thin layers of packed snow quickly. If you lived in area with snow and cloudy winter days, forget it. Forget driving on ice.
