Default Hankook iPike W409

short and sweet, kinda. i have only had tires on for 1 day when the temp got down to freezing and we had some light wet snow/rain.

i had a dream last night that i was driving and all of the sudden, it started to snow a little and of course, that exact scenario happened as i left for work this morning.

- the ride quality is cushy and fairly quiet.
- any initial turn is very mushy and boat like but, the tires do hold to the dry/wet pavement pretty well once the intitial mush sets in.
- i was able to get around a frequently used off ramp at about 8-10mph less ( 45mph on the ipikes/55 452's )than my summer tires ( fk 452's, ) but i have not tried to push either set to their limit.
- and these tires work well in the dirt too, a lot less sliding from the stock potenzas, but i liked the control i achieved.

i will update with feedback once some real snow hits. hopefully soon!
