Tire Pros

I have never had real winter tires before, but I am hooked. I hope it snows all winter, they are unbelieveable in snow/ice we just got.

Tire Cons

Dry handling is a little scary. I drive pretty fast everywhere and the rear wants to lead in dry fast corners. I just have to slow until spring.

After years of all season tires, I made the switch to summer and winter tires on different wheels. My first experience on winter tires is unreal. You can drive on a snow/ice mix like the road is dry. I can't wait for more. I will have winter tires from now on even if I only have one set of wheels. The Hankooks were reasonable and work so good.

Tire Pros

Variety of winter tires available ,lots of useful information on each.

Tire Cons

Winter Tire page is (for me anyway) sometimes hard to find from other pages. Was shopping for a tire/wheel package.

I can easily say that this was far and away,the best on-line shopping experience ever! The most difficult part was trying to choose from the vast selection of winter tires in all price ranges. Then came wheel shopping,again,choice. To me,it was made almost idiot-proof with the aid of the tool showing our exact car,with the tire/wheel combination. so easy,really. I got to checkout,and felt uncertain,so I couldn't pull the trigger. I called customer service,and man,was I glad I did! The man on the other end of the line was so knowledgeable,so courteous,so helpful,and he saved me money on our installation kit to boot! If tht's not enough,I was told our tires would arrive by weeks end,and they got here mid-week! You've got a new customer singing your praises!
