GREAT TIRE OVERALL. However, do not use this tire in any kind of snow or ice conditions. I don't know how they can say it's an "all season" tire. In fact, I don't want it to be an all season tire. I have winter tires for snow and Achilles for fun in the sun and some confidence in the rain. Yes I rated this 5 out of 5 for snow. I did this to keep up the overall average. This should be a summer only or a 3 season tire and not have a rating for snow. This tire is a very bad tire in snow. I had trouble getting out of my driveway after an overnight snow storm last October! I put my winter wheels and tires on that same day and could blast through the snow, and most important... stop my car! Oh ya, can everyone also please stop going on and on about the name Achilles. Who cares about the name? They are a cheep tire but they perform great!!
