Had these tires installed, 235-65/17, about a month ago, and tonight was the first time I actually got to use them in a snowstorm. Holy cow, what a tire. Tread is aggressive, but road noise is minimal. Dry/wet traction is great.
Drove through the storm in the NE tonite, over the berkshires. I never felt a slip, never got squirrely, never felt unsafe. I looked in my rearview at one point and had 6 cars following my tracks. Number stayed constant for about 30 miles. I even tried gettin the rear to kick out once I got closer to home, with no success. Incredible grip in the snow
Now I just have to figure out if the ice buildup on my brake pads is normal......that made for a couple of interesting situations...
Got em for 130/tire mounted and balanced. NEver been happier with a set of rubber on any vehicle I've owned.
