I live in PA - do I want to run snow tires ~5 months a year when we're in freezing temps? No. I want a tire that does well in late fall and early spring. Such a tire is neither a snow tire nor summer tire. And since all-seasons remain sufficient for my needs the other 6 months of the year (compared to how winter tires function in summer and vice versa), they fit my needs well.
Agree!

I'm running UHPAS

The "W" speed rated version of this tire is UHP, "H" is just HP.

Stock suspension. I run a slightly taller tire 225/45/17. This fills the wheelwell a little more. Small (very small) hit in gas mileage. EDIT** Loved these tires. Wear and handling remain excellent. Noise after 25k unbeareable. Going back to RE760's
