A family member had Trpletreads on an Infinity FX 35 and they were an outstanding commuter tire for Alberta winters. Treadwear was nearly 90k when changed out. My experience on the MKX has been outstanding during one of the worst winters on record. Seem to be wearing well to this point but I cannot speak to the long term. Ride is a little stiffer than some other tires. Other reviews have been critical of noise but this is to be expected given the tread pattern and winter performance. Noise has not been problematic for me. BTW changed out factory 22 inch rims for aftermarket 18's and these tires. The big wheels and Pirelli's looked sharp but were totally impractical for winter conditions or rough roads.
