Follow-Up Review: 3,500 miles on tires
December 30, 2012
Just went through the big winter storm in the Adirondacks. This tire passed with flying colors. I saw other SUV's on the ski area access road going nowhere with all 4 wheels spinning. I had no problem at all going around them and smoothly making it up that hill, or out of my driveway over the big piles of snow left by the town's plows. Not a single hiccup. They even corner better on snow and ice than the snows (Nokian WR-G2 SUV) that I just replaced. They're also great on dry roads or through heavy rain. These are the perfect year-round tire for the 3d-generation CR-V. Extremely happy with this purchase.
Initial Review: 800 miles on tires

I bought these based on the great reviews from other 3d Gen CR-V owners. I haven't encountered snow or even significant rain yet, but my wife, who didn't like the ride with my recently replaced Nokian WR-SUV's (not recommended), really likes the ride now. So far, so good. Much quieter ride, holds the road great. MPG is down, but I guess that's because these are new tires replacing bald tires and the outside temperature has dropped. Looking forward to updating this review when I drive through some serious snow.
