    A very well balanced effort by Toyo. Ice grip is very good, as good as the Michelin X-Ice2 I had on my previous car. Snow performance is in my opinion better than said Michelin, but not as good as some Gislaved (Nord-Frost 3 and 5) and Nokian tires I have used before. Dry and wet road performance is excellent, first winter tire I've had that doesn't feel like it's a compromise. Handling is very secure. Just have to make sure to bump up the air pressure by 10 extra psi due to my car normally having run-flat tires. At stock air pressure they are terrible... Glad I figured it out, totally transformed the performance of the tire in all conditions. Road noise is good but there... typical of a high quality winter. Same with the minor vibrations at highway speed, this is one of the smoothest winter tires I have had, however. Wear so far has been good. I'll get 3 seasons out of them, for sure.

    At the beginning of the 4th season, 26000Km the winter only. My tire had already reaches half of wear so I told myself one last season .... big mistake, this tire has become very slippery on snowy roads, icy and especially on wet highways.

    F:225/45/18, R:245/45/18 I've had these for two seasons so far and daily drive with them. Superb dry traction for a winter tire (almost as good as some summer tires in summer), great snow and ice traction on shovelled roads but traction control will kick in often on deep snow more than 15cm. Good to above average on wet and slushy conditions, and generally a bit noisy but tolerable (but less so on highway) considering it is a winter tire. Very minimal "Squishy" feeling while cornering aggressively but generally comfortable. Treadwear is superb considering I drive them aggressively and occasionally do donuts and drifting in the snow for fun. Overall, I'd give the Garit KX a rating of 4.2 out of 5.
