This tire came as OEM on my 2011 MINI Countryman. I drive in a pretty spirited manner, and like to take curves somewhat fast - as such I feel like I've gotten a good amount of tread life out of the tires, especially compared to other tires I've used on previous MINI models.
The tire performance is I feel really good for an all season tire. I've been satisfied with it in really hot conditions, but also the performance on ice and snow is really good for an all season tire.
An all season tire is never going to be as grippy as a performance tire, or quite as good on ice as a dedicated snow tire. But if you just want one set of tires to last a year and do pretty well all around, these seem to be the best I have used.
Also of note is that I've also used the tires for light off-road driving - some forest roads. The tires seemed fine and did not give me any problems.
