This tire does exceptionally well in wet and snow. It gives enough edge on dry roads. The noise is the quietest tire I ever own. I have owned, P Nero zero ms, potenza re970, Gefore sport 2, neogens, Dunlop sp, and toyo proxes. I have driven all these tires on Subaru based cars. For an area where I live. Pacific Northwest, you get every kind of weather you can think of. I will buy these tires again. Because they perform so well for a reasonable price. Great job Cooper for getting in the game.
These are awesome tires. I live in the snow belt of NYS and in a hilly area, and they will go through just about anything with a feeling of stability and good handling. I am on my second set now. I rated the noise a 4 because they are a bit loud on dry pavement but it is nothing intolerable and certainly not a reason to not buy them. Please note: the tire mileage is low because I sold them after only one winter, due to getting a new vehicle. I could not leave that space blank. They were in like-new condition when sold, and I bought another set because I needed a different size.
