while driving a
Subaru Impreza GX AWD
(205/50 R16) on
a combination of roads
Had them for one winter as I've sold the car with them (05 Impreza 2.0i). Tested on a winter track day, street fun during snow storm and dry roads.
Overall the tyre is confortable above everything, it has very soft sidewall, grips very well in wet, snow, slush and ok on dry, but could not call it good. Actually, grip was ok, had to pull the handbrake to initiate slides on snow, but on dry it was too soft and would not send much feedback. Braking was ok, so I think it has to do with the soft sides that handling was not that good.
So, if you take it easy on the corners if dry, this is the perfect tyre. Same confort and snow/wet grip as premium tyres, but on a budget.
