Tire Pros

The only "better" or "best" tire available in the correct size when I looked.

Tire Cons

Can't think of any unless it's price but since they last longer, it's cheaper for one set vs. several sets of low end tires.

Great tires. I had hoped the OEM tires would have lasted longer but since the dealer prep evidently did not include checking the alignment... the OEM tires were shot and at 25k miles I am blessed with a reason to buy these tires.

I've been waiting to review these tires until I had some experience with them on ice and snow. Now that I've had that, I must say these are great tires. These tires overcome my lack of wintry driving skills, and really make me feel safe on the road.
