while driving a
Volvo s60 D5 (163)
(225/45 R17 V) on
Good all round tire. I bought a set of 4 tire in november 2008 as 2nd hand with 6.5mm of tread. The front lasted some 15.000 mile and rear are still on after 30.000 mile. I found a good compromise for english seasons, quite cool in the summer and not so cold in the winter and I think they are a good choice if you can't afford to go for winter tires for 2-3 months a year then change back for summer ones.
Proved to have very good grip on the road on very cold days, some grip on snow (although can't except winter tire performance), good on both wet and dry tarmac. Noisier than summer tires but quieter than winter ones.
