Only two seasons. Excellent on snow and mud. Comfortable, changed my old Sava eximo, much better for me. Use it for commmuting.

Very good tires for the price. The front pair lasted 2 winters (2016 and 2017) and the back pair will do another winter (2018), totaling 3 winters for the back pair.

Given 80% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Corolla (195/60 R15 H) on mostly motorways for 1,000 average miles
The reaction of the tyres in wet and dry roads is satisfactory. Especially it is very good on dry roads. Comparing with the previous tyres, handling capabilities decreases with the speed increases. I have no chance to test them in ice and snow yet.

Given 75% (breakdown) while driving a Mercedes Benz A (185/60 R15 T) on mostly town for 0 spirited miles
On a 2004 W168, these are soft, easy to drive, have just enough feedback but are not a sport tyre. They grip very well in snow and have excellent traction off the line, as well as reasonably good brake performance. They are not as good in turns, but are in no way bad either. On wet they offer very reasonable performance and are very good at braking. They are worth well over their price tag and considering the quality of other tyres in the same range, the Hankooks are the winner.
