Looks awesome, but I am worried that the compound is going to be too soft. We still have a few days of warm weather left here in Ohio and I'm afraid there will be excessive wear....
In 2 years those will be worthless and dangerous.
WS70 utilizes a proprietary dual-layer compound, with the overlying layer offering tremendously enhanced traction capabilities on ice and hardpack snow: the problem? that top layer covers only the top ~50% of the tread, and is quickly worn, similarly, due to this "stacking," this tire is among the least "stable," when it comes to subjective "feel," of its fellow sub-genre mates

Next time, get something that lasts til the tread is gone like Michelin or Nokians. I am sure your first year on them will be awesome, but watch your wear and when it gets half tread you need to toss them.
