No kidding Luke. The funny part is when I clicked on the link Tire Rack was the advertisement in the banner.

Does anyone have assurance tires on their car? The reviews I see, say that they are great in the snow, but I can't imagine that since they don't look like that are knobby enough to really bite. I have to start looking for tires soon, and I need an all season tire that is good in the snow.

So far so good for my new BFG Traction TAs. I got H-rated, but they're available in V also. They have an AA traction rating (wet braking), which is better than most, and their dry grip is much better than my Sube's OEM tires.

They've done great for me in my limited snow time since I bought 'em, and they were best in class for snow (and overall) in the surveys on Tirerack.com. The Tripletreds were also best in their class both for snow, and overall in the tirerack surveys. The Tractions TAs are a lot less expensive than the Tripletreds.

Eh, never have been, and never will be a fan of multi-season tires.

You don't use snow tires in Dallas do you? The last place I've lived where it really snowed on me was Texas, and with my summer tires on my light RWD coupe, I couldn't get up a hill to my home-had to take a longer way with a more gradual climb. I think all season tires are great if you don't get enough snow to justify snow tires, and don't need a high performance tire.

these are the sort of tires that are "capable" in everything and "excellent" in nothing.

No, But I spend 6 years living Northwest of Detroit. We had plenty of snow there.

I use Blizzak LM-18's (which are now replaced by the LM-22's).

They are snow tires but with a more all season like ride. They work great in the dry and are very good, but not the best, in the snow. Better than All season for the white stuff but not as bad as regular snow tires when it isn't snowy or snowing.

Default Goodyear Assurance TripleTred (H-rated, 740 treadwear)

Tripletred is H-rated (130mph) only, plus the temperature grade is B. I wonder if it is safe enough for speed between 100-120MPH? I don't autox or doing tracks, but sometimes (when almost no traffic on freeways) I'll drive that fast for fun. I've never tried holding at 120MPH for more than 20 seconds tho.

The reviews on tire rack seem "too good", and looks like this "Passenger All-Season" tire outperforms other "max/ultra-high performance" tires...
Do we have someone here already using TripleTred for their WRXs? I'm thinking about this coz my RE92s are about to worn out, and I want a set of tires suitable for daily driving (comfort, less road noise) while having significantly better performance than the RE92s. Please do not tell me something like, "Brand XXX is better than TripleTred" coz I know there are some brands better than this, but I would be more happier to know why I shouldn't use TripleTred on my WRX.

How will TripleTred compare to other highly praised all-season tires such as ContiExtreme, Falken 512, Sumi HTR+, Kumho AXS in terms of:
Dry/Wet handling/cornering, ride quality, road noise?

BTW, I think TripleTred is the most expensive one among the other 4. Just wanna know if TripleTred really worth the money before I'm putting them on.
