North Dakota Winter last year convinced me to invest in dedicated snow tires. After thorough research, I chose these, and I am very pleased. Amazing tires. Great ride, very quiet at highway speed, and insane grip in slush, on glare pack snow. When cruising through snow drifts, there is no lateral pull, just a straight charge through. I only have a thousand miles on them but I loved them so much I installed a set on my Mazda. I have not yet had a chance to get them into an empty parking lot and really put them through their paces, but I can definitely suggest these tires. I chose the SUV version for the Subaru, but I definitely appreciate the stiffer sidewall in corners. It is a heavy car to begin with, it sees a majority of highway mileage, and lots of hauling. I am very excited to have these on my family wagon. Highly recommend.
I love these tires. Had them on my volvo s70 1999 this winter. They were perfect all around.
Perfect winter tyres. Good grip on dry roads, even better on wet roads, excellent traction on snow, handles slush well. Good on ice, too, but looses grip suddenly, not gradually like the predecessor Hakkapeliitta R.
