AT 20,000 miles these tires are almost done. They will be useless in snow, and in the wet traction from a standing start is questionable. These are obviously a tire only for the dealer's showroom floor, and are not meant for longevity. Buy the Ecopia EP422 instead, that's a great tire.

These were original equipment on our 2012 Toyota Prius 3. While they are very good in the dry and a good riding tire, they are not very good at all in the snow! Tried them out in 1-3 inches and they couldn't stop the car very well despite the ABS and traction controls best efforts, nor could they catch when pulling away, they broke traction pretty easy. They do ride well, but seem noisier than most. They're also extremely soft. We're at 8,000 miles and they are already at half life. I'll need new tires by 20,000 miles at best! These are nothing more than an entry level OE tire. When we buy a new set we'll probably go with the Ecopia EP422s.
