    Dont know about these but we just put a set of Cooper Evolutions on my wifes Outback and they perform very well. Tread pattern looks very similar. Goodyear bought out Cooper last week :(

    No. But I'm looking for something narrower than stock for a Winter tire.

    why? I mean....yeah there’s that phenomenon of less surface area less float more bite....but unless you’re driving exclusively on hard packed/black ice streets 24/7 narrower than stock tires are going to be a compromise in every other situation & then there’s the aesthetic.....

    btw.....I also ask “why?” Coming from direct experience running nokian
    hakkapeliitta’s (I just call em hakkas that name is ridiculous) in stock 315/70R17....have had em w/ & w/o the studs in & ahhhhhh yeah, you don’t need anything narrower bud

    I literally drive “as if” there’s no weather to be concerned of in flat out blizzard conditions passing plows in 4H @ 70 leaving a nice rooster tail behind me


    SLAM on the brakes? lil abs chatter, add another 20% distance & it just stops, undramatically, in a straight line- not ass out.

    I’ve run snows on my 4x4 trucks the last 10 years & I’ll never go back

    right tool for the job makes a big diff- def worth investing in for the supreme confidence in the winter weather


    I just LOL to myself when guys try & reason that an MT or an AT is anywhere close to the level of a true dedicated snow tire- in reality, a crap passenger all season tire has more in common w/ a drag radial than an MT has w/ a snow tire hahahah- & the performance delta between how a sports car behaves w/ summer only max/200 tread ware barely street legal tires vs an all season is also a good analogy to how much better a vehicle will perform in the winter w/ snows vs anything else


    so def agree w/ the mindset anyhow

    I also use the Hakkapeliitta’s, live in Breckenridge CO. They are great.
