awsome for an all season tire! I've tried some stupid sh*t in a parking lot but could never really get it to slide. I have only lost control twice on the road, both times were completely my fault, and having the snow high enough for my to plow with the front didn't really help.

They are good year round. Not the best at the track for some reason.

I really cant tell ya why, because I dont know. When I bought the car the rims were in good shape, no curb rash or scratches. They did have a lot of brake dust build up in the tight spots. When I rotate the tires and detail it each rim get * a good polish with turtle wax chrome polish. The damn things just shine. I even push them in the winter and no problems.

Hey i just got a set of those for the family van. Did you get them from tire rack? I managed to get them on special for $50 a pop. But i noticed that they rode very nicely and even on the big van they help the handling. I believe i have the "T" rated ones though.

Ahh must be like sams club wholesalers here. I looked there but they wanted almost $25 more AND they had to be special ordered. So i saved like 25 bucks ordering from tirerack, got them shipped to my door, and it all was the same amount of time. Hope you are enjoying them.
