Quality tire... put on a few thousand miles and they are just getting broke in. Not great on ice tractionwise, but real good in rainy or dry conditions.

Oh that'* "purdy" I like the looks of those but I don't think they're the best choice where I live, because I get a lot of ice and way too many sudden climate changes and that would be a pain in the rear for me.

I just got cheap "no brand" tires and they're holding up surprisely well. It understeers a bit but better than my old Goodyears LS. The goodyears was too "fleshy" and rolled over on itself during hard cornering.

Now remember to rotate them after driving hard for a while oh and don't make the wife puke

I need to rotate mine , been a while and my shoulders on my fronts are wearing fast.

I figure next winter I'll get a set of hardcore snow treads and stud them if needed, but for the rest of this winter they'll be a lot better then the Futuras I'm running right now that should have been retired a few k miles back.

I rotate about every other oil change, every oil change on the Jeep. Some say over kill, I say more excuses to tinker

Oh, don't worry about the wife puking, she enjoys a spirited ride as much as I do

Wow, I'm amazed that your wife is very active in the world of fast driving and off-roading, etc. I think you should be nominated for the "Man With Bestest Wife Ever" award.

Whoa, can you imagine the Bonneville with visible metal studs, can anyone say "unstoppable"

I may need snow tires this fall, I have a feeling in my bones that it'll be a cold one next fall.
