Got Hankook Ipike W409 = awesome tire on snow
 
Just got some Hankook Ipike W409 205 50 17 i did not stud it, because don't want any noise. Test it yesterday on 10 inches of fresh snow. All i can say is wow :)) It grips like you on pavement, and i was able to do 90 degrees turn going 40 on snow.:cool:
Price paid 620 $ including balancing and mounting.

What wheels did you mount them on?

Can you repeat the same trick in the wet?

I'm going on 3 years with my set. Still looks new. When the car breaks loose. Its really easy to control the car.

Yep, all my friends got those tires by my recommendation, all happy, and we got like 10 inches of snow over last 48 hours :))

was it 2 weeks ago. Chicago, 65F (WTF?), my 7 year old Nokians (3rd owner/ 50% thread left, WTF#2 :) and wet road = some interesting, almost no traction behavior. Quite similar to crappy all seasons on snow actually but much less predictable :)

That would be the first one for any winter tire.
