This is my first Kumho ice tire. I had the opportunity to do my testing with the first ice storm. I can say I had no problems, braking, acceleration, cornering. I did push the speed in a big flat corner and I did notice some side slip. So far, I am very happy with my purchase. Price was great.

This is my first set of winter tires ever. With its narrow 6 ft. 1.5 in. (73.5 in.) wheel base, the 2014 smart fortwo ED (Electric Drive) is a difficult car to drive in winter conditions. Even more, it's a difficult car to drive in wet conditions (rainy weather.) So those special considerations had to be taking into account when reviewing winter tires for my car. In my experience, these winter tires will work only if the smart fortwo driver drives very cautiously and avoids aggressive or extreme driving. I've tested these tires on ice and snow roads and as long as I took it easy and drove very conservatively, they performed excellently. They got me up snowed hills where others cars got stuck. They got me up iced hills where I passed others cars that couldn't make it and where my Prius C couldn't even make it. If you own a smart fortwo you know that driving it during even dry conditions requires constant adjustments of the wheel steering. Well, during winter conditions those adjustments are more needed. Yet, these winter tires keep my smart solid on my freeway lane, during blizzard conditions at the speed limits of 45, 50, 55, 60, and 65 mph. I always drive at the speed limits. And during dry conditions all other drivers pass me at greater speed. They go from 5 to 15 miles over the speed limit. During winter conditions I pass other drivers while I'm going at the speed limits. So, these tires give me the confidence to drive my smart fortwo on the freeway, in winter conditions. Finally, these are good tires for my 2014 smart fortwo ED. Just be aware that the only driving you'll be able to do during true winter conditions (Iowa winter) is that of a cautious, reserved driver. Forget the aggressive and the extreme driving. Both will get you on the ditch; winter tires or not.

One of the best winter tires I have ever used. Finally wore out after over 70,000 km of use over multiple winters. Replaced them with another set of the same type.
