What are those, the Cooper WinterMasters? A very capable winter tire, in my experience. I used a set of those for a couple of years then my company went to the WinterHandler (private label made by Cooper). I've been through 2 sets of those. They are VERY good for aggressive driving in the snow (which I "occassionally" do). This year I'm switching to the WinterForce by Firestone. Super-aggressive, directional, deep tread with stepped lugs for added traction. They are also pinned for studs, but I haven't decided if I'm going to stud them yet. Now I just have to finish painting my rims gold....

I feel your pain, bro.

I put mine on Sunday.... talk about a loss in grip!! :x My right foot is still being retrained.

Mine are Michelin Alpin 175/70R13s. They have decent lateral stability, don't have much fore/aft stability until you get them on wet or snowy roads. Then they seem to come into their element. They also make a neat whirring sound in the rain.

I was able to drive up a rough, steep snow/ice covered driveway that my friend barely made up in his 4wd SUV w/ off-road tread, last winter with them. I sure wish I had a LSD though.

I'm looking forward to the first good snowfall we have.. I'm going to mount up the camera mount and go blitzing.

Yeah they are Cooper Winter Masters, they do have holes already, for studs...


I have a set of Michelin Alpine’s 2 winter ago... and never again will I get those........ by the end of the winter (1winter) they were winter slicks. The tred wear is ... horrible on them. They are way to soft…
