the best tyre we've had on the Touareg so far (200000 k). Handles as good as a performance tyre on the dry road. Almost as good off road as a true A/T (general Grabber AT2). Ice performance is like all seasons, snow handling better than all season but not as good as Winter tyres (Pirelly Scorpions). Thread wear is as expected for a heavy vehicle as the 'treg, especially with aggressive on road cornering. The noise level after break in period is disappointing, though. Will buy again but will again travel to US- although these are made in Canada, we have to pay almost twice the US price north of the border. Savings are good for a spring break road trip-almost.
