We've had a pretty interesting winter storm here in Indy the past few days and these tires have been absolutely AMAZING! The grip and braking abilities are just night and day better than ANY winter tire I've used on city streets. Yesterday the city roads and interstates were covered in a layer of ice about 3 inches thick. The Hakkas had zero issue with any of it. Stop light turns green, we just accelerate like normal. Get out on the interstate and I feel I could have comfortably gone the speed limit without any issue ( I chose to back off a bit so as to not have to talk to the local police ;) ) These tires just continue to amaze me over and over. Can't wait for Sno*Drift Rally in a couple of weeks to go hit the Northern Michigan backroads!
