Summary: Currently Running the Primax's on a show/spirited driven Scion TC. Good grip in both the wet and dry. Being here in Seattle you have to find a good compromise between those two weather events. Road noise even on very stiff racing coilovers is minimal if not even something to be heard.
Summary: Although the original tires on my VW TDI Sports Wagon were m/s rated, they were hopeless in the snow. So, living in the Colorado mountains, I bought new wheels and what ended up to be super tires. Up here it can be 70 degrees and dry one day, -30 and a blizzard the next.
Summary: Before buying the Michelin snow tires I thought "I don't need snow tires because I have a front wheel drive car and all the weight was in the front". The first year I had the car I was fine and I'm not sure what brand of tire was on the car.
Summary: This tire ( 205 55R16) replaced the Pilot Alpin 2`s which were the original winter tire for a 2008 Mercedes C300 4matic (AWD), and have had one full winter season`s use, which in Kelowna, BC, is 7 months.
Summary: I am very happy with them. Better then the Advan dB 215/50/17 I took off, very quiet on the motorway, better wet/ dry handling and better comfort. I can't comment on longevity as I've only covered around 4k miles, but so far so good! Sure I will be buying again and recommend them to my friend.
