The moment I left the tire store after installation, i noticed the steadiness, smoothnes, quiet & comfort of these tires. Not only was it like day & night compared with my OEM all seasons, but even with the other winter tires that I'd used, such as Bridgestone (Ice Guard? more than 10 years ago), Pirelli Winter Carving, Nexen, etc., the Ice Zero FR are so much better. We didn't have much snow here in Toronto & vicinity last year, but still they were excellent under all conditions. They are the best winter tires I've ever used. The only unknown is treadwear since I only have them for one winter and 5,000 km., but the wear looks good, They were new design last year and I am surprised that Made in Russia can be this good.
Got these on my brand new 2014 Elantra, drove with them for less than 25,000 km , mostly highway driving at that and all 4 tires are already completely worn! Very disappointed and the worse tires out there!
