Your review and personal comments

Best all around summer tire under $200. This is my summer tire, I use it from May to October. I have around 15,000 miles on them. I drive canyon roads and dirt roads often. Responsive handling at speed, some under steer in tight corners on road, great traction off road and performs well when wet. I went on a drive first October snow, first tracks not plowed, good traction in slush and deep snow even up hill 12" deep . Moderate to poor stopping on ice what do you expect, its a summer tire. I will buy these tires again. 9 out of 10
