This is an update to my previous review with a few more miles on the tires. Still very disappointing. We had some decent snow here a week or so ago, so I could test them. Braking traction is good in all conditions, but cornering is awful. I still feel slippage on turns in dry, wet, and snow conditions. It's interesting that traction in snow is about the same as wet pavement. All season? Not really-not even that great on dry pavement. Sporty? Not unless you like sliding through your turns. A step or two down from the Goodyears that came on the car and many steps down from the Dunlops.
