“Well, I know now. I know a little more how much a simple thing like a snowfall can mean to a person”

Whether we are based on carbon or silica makes no fundamental difference. We should each be treated with appropriate respect. (From the movie 2010...well, sort of.)

Ok, sue me, I took liberty with

silicon

...

Let me rob another line from that movie in response to what's going on with the WRG3s -

Something Wonderful...

I have only read that tires require a break in period. That being said, I think I am experiencing it for what seems to be the first time since I am fully

aware

of the

presence

of new tires.

After three thousand miles or so, it seems the tires are getting better. The ride (while it was never harsh) feels likes it has smoothed out. Tire noise? Practically non-existent. I like 'em.

We have gotten socked with some rain lately and this is a good thing. While I would never purposely endanger myself or others, I have been unleashing the hamsters under the hood of the Prius as I come into wet corners lately. The tires have been flawless. There has been no loss of control or stability. I don't even hear a squeal or detect a rub when taking a hard corner. Stopping in the rain? On a dime.

The tires have not behaved at all like snow tires. I can report that characteristics of a good all-season have not been compromised with the WRG3.

If you read my previous post, you will recall that I was finding it hard to come to grip with the reason why the WRG3 exists in the first place. Well, I can answer half of that question. It makes a damn good all season. Let's see how they do in the snow...
