So far, so fabulous. I put them on about three weeks ago, and have been through conditions ranging from 60 and sunny, to 30 and snowing, including having to brake and accelerate on an icy bridge that was the scene of a four-car boom session. The WRs have performed exceptionally well in all conditions, far better in the non-winter conditions than my previous winter tire, the Blizzak WS-series. Above 80 mph, it's no contest. Where the Blizzak felt rather insecure/uncertain, the WR just rolls, smooth, predictable and confident.

So far, I love these tires.
