Comment:
I was looking at CR recommendations to replace the original tires on my 2010 HHR. And it occurred to me I got 830000 miles on the tires my car came with. I was very happy how they worked in the snow, certainly they worked better the first 2 winters, but they got me through 3 winters in mid Michigan. I did not notice any weaknesses. They were very quiet. What more recommendation do I need than that?
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
