Dry Performance
Snow/Ice Performance
Treadwear
Wet Performance
I have had these tires for two years and I would say they are amazing! They perform perfectly in the dry and in the wet and I haven't had any hydroplaning! More over, I can drive in snow safely because the tires do good job on it too. And I noticed the long lasting wear of the tires.
What is bad?
Wet braking is good but not excellent.

What is good?
Dry Performance
Snow/Ice Performance
Treadwear
Wet Performance
I have had these tires for two years and I would say they are amazing! They perform perfectly in the dry and in the wet and I haven't had any hydroplaning! More over, I can drive in snow safely because the tires do good job on it too. And I noticed the long lasting wear of the tires.
What is bad?
Wet braking is good but not excellent.
