The car is driven by my girlfriend. She loves these tires. The original set of Bridgestone tires had a very poor tread design, in my opinion. They hydroplaned in rain and offered absolutely no traction in snow. Steering in snow was scary.
The Yohohama tires are an amazing addition to this vehicle. Handling is precise. Traction on rain covered streets is excellent. Grip and steering in snow has totally transformed her driving experience in winter. When my Taurus wagon needs new tires, I wil be purchasing Yokohama Avid EnVigors.
