Dunlop Graspic DS-3
Follow-Up Review: 3,000 miles on tires

Now that I have been able to drive these tires in the snow it is time to give a proper snow review. I have taken the car up and down ice/snow covered roads to go skiing/sledding with the kids. I would slide down the hill with my boots, but the car would stick. I have been able to drive thru snow without any slippage from normal driving. While the max speed of these tires are rather low, I would say that is from the soft compound of the tires. At the limit (100mph) they do get really non-responsive. I don't tend to drive faster then 75 mph, which the do fine on the Autobahn.

This is my initial review, had just put the tires on, no snow as of yet though. I will say that I am suprised by how quite the tires are for being studless snow and ice tires. I was expected more of a drone, but there isn't any. The ride quality is nice since I do have the ZSP option - Sports suspension, it does make the car a bit soft in the corners and you don't feel the bumps as much either. I will follow up when it snows here with how well it handles.
