Follow-Up Review: 18,000 miles on tires
November 21, 2012
Now have these tires on for fourth winter. Other than some noise on dry pavement, this set of tires has been ideal. Handle as good as my summer tires. Great traction in snow, even when it was deep enough to send a sheet of snow over my windshield, the tires never missed a beat. No adverse effect on gas mileage and after three full winter seasons, including the snowiest one on record in CT, still plenty of tread left. My wife's car had Hankook tires that look almost identical but these are noticeably quieter and more responsive. My favorite tire.
Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires

I put about 1,000 miles on these tires, mostly on dry and wet roads where it is quiet and very responsive. Drives almost as good ae original tires. First chance to drive in deep snow going through 7-8 of fresh snow on a local dirt road - no problems at all. Great price, wonderful drive on dry roads, and confidence-inspiring on snowy roads. Good choice.
