Been running Hankook iPike snow tires for years on all my vehicles. Good value for the money and really, how fast can you safely drive in the winter anyway? On a rear-drive V8 these snow tires are good, get me through the snow and ice. The posi-traction and studded tires on the drive wheels are the way to go in winter on a rear drive car. This is the first year with the new iPike RS tire so we'll see how it compares to the old iPike - they look the same. Lowered my expectations for performance and handling in the winter. So far they keep me outta trouble and get from A to B with little drama.
