This is true. An experienced driver will be able to get by in many scenarios, but not without taking a greater risk in the process. Winter tires are by far the optimal performers and if an all season tire needs to be used, something like a Continental DWS 06 will outperform the Hankook by a huge margin in the snow.

I don't associate any credibility to that Tire Rack overall rating. If you look more closely, it has to do with the poor performance in the snow, which was known/expected. Your average driver will buy an all season tire and expect miracles in every condition.

Performance in the dry/wet as well as comfort are still rated quite high and I will continue to use this tire on at least one of my E46's.

Good solid review. Thanks for keeping us updated. If your looking for a more value priced all-season this tire is worth a strong look. I have owned a set my self personally and have been very pleased overall. Wet traction could be improved a little.

I had these on my Prius on FRS wheels last year. I must say they are good tires. I was quite happy with them. They're not marketed as low rolling resistance tires but they do claim to feature low rolling resistance rubber. Either way they got good economy and gripped pretty decently for what they are.
