Pretty good tire especially for the price. Even though it's not the best winter tire, they're better than all-seasons. Tire noise is apparent. Can ride hard in -30C Winnipeg weather. Haven't gotten stuck driving in some bad snow storms. Braking is decent on ice. Overall a good budget purchase.
Two years old, approximately 8,000 km on these tires. Winter tires used in snow season. Tires rode well at first, gas mileage was very good. With age, road noise seems to get louder and ride has become harsher. (New shocks installed this past spring). I am considering the installation of a new set of tires due to the noise factor coupled with the harsh ride.
Hi everyone. I had these installed in Jan 2010 and paid alot ($800 for 4 tires) expecting them to last for the 130,000km rated. Not even close. Here we ar ein July 2012, with only 50,000km on them, they are worn out, I had them rotated every 10,000 km, and you should hear the Fountain Tire excuses (dealership's fault, my fault as the driver, definitely nothing to do with them, etc.). Shocking really. I will say they are a great tire in snow/ice but they wear out quick and they do make alot of road noise as well - I mean alot. All in all, I won't buy another set.
