It was my first post that started this thread, and I was a bit unhappy with the ride. Perhaps 3 or 4 weeks driving helped, but I am now very happy with these Weatherready tires. Our streets here are badly potholed and I guess that did not help, though my previous tires did not seem so bad. They are smooth on highway pavement. I was out in very heavy rain back in November, on a hilly and twisting highway and felt like I was driving on railway tracks. Not that I have ever gone sliding in the rain, using other tires, but these new tires showed quite a grip. In the meantime, up in Northern Ontario, we got hit by a long stretch of minus 30 to 40C temps and I am sure by now we have had 2 to 3 FEET of snow. Snowbanks are terrible. These Weatherready tires have a much better grip on cold snowpacked streets and great traction in any snowfall. Very impressive tires.
