This was my first experience with snow tires and I must say, I am truly blown away by the dry/wet/snow performance! On dry and wet pavement, this tire keeps my Accord planted with confidence, no hydroplaning in rain (even at speed >100 mph). I picked the Pirelli brand over the Michelin Alpine 4 because of the tread pattern and rating I saw on another website! My ONLY complaint is I picked the incorrect size; my ride's lowered on Eibach springs and minor dips causes a bit of rubbing in the front 😡. Hoping I can purchase a set in 235/40/18, for this coming winter! Almost forgot to elaborate on snow performance. Only lost control in snow when I turned a corner > 40 mph; almost hit the curb but was able to downshift to sport mode and steer myself out of trouble!

I bought these tires specifically because they were the best performance winter tires on the market. I have driven them on went, dry, and now have a lot of time driving them on snow. They are exactly as advertised, a great performance winter tire! If I had to point out one weakness, I find that breaking performance in the snow is quite poor! This really surprises me as accelerating in snow and overall handling in snow is excellent!

So far, it's a great product. I need a little more snow though to figure out how well they hold up.
