Hankook i*pike RW11 Snows Installed

I got these snow tires for my winter wheels to replace some michellin latitude ZP's. I ran the all season michellins last winter and they were ok, but I can't wait for snow fall this year. And I wont have to wait too long as we are suppose to get 6-12" today.

I got a good deal on the Hankook's from discounttiredirect.com and have heard good reviews. They are pretty chunky with 13/32" thread depth and are suppose to be quiet on the highway. I will post a review after I've put some miles on them.

I was looking at picking up a set of these to for the '11 X5d but haven't found many reviews on them. I have experience with Blizzaks and they were incredible but they are going for almost $300/tire, I'd like to find a less expensive alternative with similar performance.

I got a good deal on these and so gave them a shot. Paid $172.00 per tire with free shipping. 255/55/18

So we're getting hit with some snow today. So far, they seem to have pretty good traction. But did slide a little going over 45mph in heavy wet snow. But I might of just been driving too fast...

Finally got power back....Have been in the dark since Sat night. Connecticut got hit pretty hard, especially in my area. Over 750k people lost power from the storm.

Anyway, I was bored and decided to go out Sat night in the blizzard. I had way too much fun. These tires were excellent in the deep heavy snow. Never lost traction.

I just picked up some new 19" wheels (style 212) and will be getting the same setup for those wheels.

So now I will sell these
