Greatest tire ever made.

This tire is the best tire i've ever had.  I've definitely pushed the limits with these tires and ever time they always perform just they way i wanted them to.  I have a subaru impreza obs and i could'nt be more comfortable driving in the snow.  Not only do they perform well in the snow and ice but they look good on the car as well.  I had my eye on the hancooks for my car but they were much more expensive compared to these but i looked at all the specs and everything was the same other than the price.  I will definitely buy these again!

Great all around performance

|

After years of purchasing overpriced performance tires that wore out at 30,000 miles, I decided to give these a go. Great performance on wet roads and in snow. Quiet, comfortable ride. Of course they don’t quite behave like high performance tires, but I am quite happy with them overall. I’ll buy them again. Great for the money.

Great tires

|

Bought these based upon reviews on Tirerack.com. Awesome snow tires. We live in Mountains where dedicated snow tires are a necessity. These tires are a bit better than blizzaks and almost as good as Hakkapellita.
