I couldn't tell any difference between the Damaris and latitudes with regards to summer performance. I occasionally put the X5 through its paces and never felt the tires weren't able to keep up, I think the latitudes are a much better, well rounded tire.

I'm not sure how much better the scorpions are or can be, if we continue to get snow in VA, i will probably buy a dedicated snow tire. For now, the Latitudes do GREAT!

If fact, I have a video of me pulling a Chevy P/U out of a snow bank today. I will attach it later.

Great traction even in the standard steam roller widths. The Damaris' are great for the summer but are starting to make a bit more noise now that they are wearing down - probably one more spring/summer/fall use and I'll be done with them.
