Had for 3 years now, done 4 trips to the Alps on 2 different cars. Did keep just for the winter season and skiing trips however, this year kept on over the summer too. Had planned to "drive them out" and buy some new ones however, 8k of driving over the summer months and only 1mm loss of tread so guess they will do another winter. Great in the snow, since I've had them haven't need the snow chains and this has involved some pretty scary mountain roads in a couple of inches of snow. Good in the summer too, quiet and confident. In reality, have got rid of a set of part worn summer tyres and will replace with AS200 when they finally need replacing. Best bit of these tyres is when it snows in the UK and you can drive past people struggling with summer tyres!
December 2017 heavy snowfall 7" in Worcestershire, the Falken AS200 were terrific, they sailed over deep snow, slush, and sheet ice. I drove in a heavy snowstorm for 200 miles with no problems. They are fitted to a Subaru Forester and together they seemed unbeatable, iced hill starts, deep snow, slush just driven over without hardly a wheel spin. My previous Subaru Outback was fitted with the same tyres and I drove to Italy in the July heat without excessive wear and good handling on the mountain passes. Brian Woodhouse.
Good compromise between price and performance. They lasted 2 year and 32000 miles. Very good aquaplanning resistance. I hardly noticed any difference of behaviour between very cold and hot conditions. On the third winter perhaps some grip may be lost. I tryed them only once in light snow and they performed very safely . I would reccomend these tyres if a particular performance is not needed.
