Follow-Up Review: 10,000 miles on tires
Drove from VT to TX on a 2000 mile moving trip. On the way we skirted the hurricane that pummeled the east coast at the end of last summer. No problems in rain and heavy downpour. Still handles great after 10,000 miles and is extremely quiet. Tread wear looks great and good for another 30 to 40k at least. We're driving in extreme heat now and the tires are still great. I am probably a fan of Hankook tires forever now.
Initial Review: 3,000 miles on tires
This is truly one of the only real all season tires on the market. I bought a set just before winter and rode around on these through one of heaviest snowfall winters of Vermont. 1 foot of snow in my driveway was no problem for these tires as I plowed through 20 feet of driveway to my garage. Same stuff my neighbors Honda accord got stuck on. This is also one of the most comfortable tires in the dry and wet too. Very comfortable and quiet. Now the only thing these tires can't do well is racetrack duty. Lets get real people you don't buy a set of these and expect them to perform like high performance summer tires. But if you want a pair of comfortable reliable snow rated tires that perform as good as and sometimes better than snow tires, then this is your tire. Honestly when I first put them on I couldn't believe how comfortable they are. Great commuter tire that won't let you down. MINI tested and approved.
