Given 67% while driving a Dacia Logan (185/65 R15 T) on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
These tyres were not my first option as I was looking for Nokian WR D4 (which were up for delivery only by the end of November).
Dry grip on Hankook was a bit disappointing at first until they started to break-in. 1000 miles later, dry grip seems to have improved.
Wet grip has been good right from the start.
I haven't had the chance to test them on snow yet.
Noise level is a bit on the high side even at lower speed.
Overall, I am happy with the choice I've made.

Given 89% while driving a Volkswagen Golf 1.9 Tdi (195/65 R15 T) on mostly town for 4,000 average miles
Great winter tire for a very good price. Highly recomended for small to medium vehicles. Suites for more asphalt driving than snow, but it still handles the slush and snow very well.
Definately will buy again.

What's better in the snow, a 4x4 or winter tyres? Watch the video to find out!
Given 87% while driving a Hyundai Getz (175/65 R14) on mostly country roads for 5,000 easy going miles
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.
