I purchased these for my 2014 Dodge Challenger SRT8. All around great tires and great value. My noise rating is related to other winter tires I've had which include Hankook i-Pike, Michelin X-Ice and various Blizzak model tires. These are just as quiet and comfortable as any of the other tires. Winter traction is still good, not as good as Blizzak, but for the price I would still by these over and over, if for no other reason the wet traction versus my Goodyear all season tires.

So far I am very happy with these tires. I have them installed on a 2013 VW Passat TDI. The handling is fine on normal road conditions and the ride and road noise are excellent. It took several weeks before I was able to check out the handling in the snow but after the initial snow storm I was very pleased with the traction and handling. Am uncertain of tread wear and won't know until the winter is over. I will update again after the full winter.

I bought 4 of these tires. I had the car 4 wheel aligned before installing them, making sure all alignment was in spec. The tires were "minus" sized as recommended for winter tires (narrower to increase tire contact patch pressure). I had high hopes for these tires. CR rated them highly in their tire tests. I have used "studless" Ice-X in the past, as well as studded snow tires. The Hankook I-cept EVO tires have poor snow/ice traction when compared to even a cheap studded snow tire. I also have studded Firestone Winterforce (which I consider a cheap tire), and the studs outperform the Hankook tires in every way except noise (only marginally on noise). I found the Hankook winter traction VERY POOR on roads with a light covering of compressed snow or slushy-snow. The Hankook tires had decent traction in fresh un-compacted snow, but this is rare since there are usually other cars on the road. I found the wet traction to be better than the ICE-X tires. For the money, a much better performing tire is the studded Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7. The Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7 tires are very quiet for a studded tire and outperform the Hankook Winter I-cept EVO tires in every way. Also the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7 outperform the Ice-X tires.

Very impressive snow tire. Not even a week after owning them I had to drive from Cleveland to Philadelphia and back in 2 winter storms. On the way there it was heavy snow for 2 hours, heavy ice for 2 hours and heavy rain for 2 hours. We didn't slip or slide once with these tires and passed numerous accidents from people spinning out on the PA turnpike in the mountains. Granted I am a cautious driver, but I felt very in control of the car with these. I also hit some fairly deep standing water at 45-50MPH with the tires and you could feel the car pull a bit to whatever side the water was on, but never hydroplaned. On the way back it was a heavy snowstorm the whole way and once again I never lost traction or slid at all. The tires are impressive on dry roads too. The road noise is very low for a snow tire and the handling is nice too. I notice some difference in noise and feel between this and a summer tire, but nothing worth complaining about. I can't speak much on tread life as the tires only have 1000 miles on them, but after 1000 miles they still look brand new.
