Front wheel drive now 4 wheel

Got R3 two weeks ago and now two two winter storms of a foot of snow, and ice and snow in Colorado mountains, and Wyoming. Incredible sure footed, renewed faith in stopping power. Takes effort to lose traction, a drifted area of road was effortlessly navigated. Worth extra money, confidence renewed, Highly recommend.

    I bought a set of R3s a month ago. On dry and wet the tires are fantastic, good handling, quiet, very nice to drive. Then the first snow came and I could say, I am much less impressed. It is a bit had to compare because this season I also changed car. My old was S60 with some good nonames in front and good Haka 8 in the back, the acceleration in snow was decent and breaking was good, almost impressive. This car is A4 Quattro with R3s. The acceleration is good, probably because of quattro, but breaking distances seem to be at somewhat longer. I also feel that the ABS works a lot harder when breaking. I will probably get used to them, but spontaneously it feels to say that Haka 8 was better.

      Used these during 2018-2019 winter season here in Sweden on my 2007 Lexus LS600h. By far the best winter tyres I've had! Extremely quiet, smooth and with excellent grip and handling. Highly recommended!

        Truly the best studless winter tires

        These are unquestionably the best studless winter tires on the market—no contest. I see people unfavourably comparing them to the hakka 8 and 9 saying that those are better on ice... well duh. A studded tire will obviously out-perform a studless tire from the same manufacturer on ice; that’s just basic physics. If you live somewhere that has skating rinks for roads all winter, then get studded tires; however, I don’t want to listen to studded tires for the few days a year that the roads are a sheet of ice. These will out-perform every other studless winter tire on the market (and I suspect many studded tires as well). I personally think they are excellent on ice for a studless tire as well. I have driven several of the equivalent offerings from competitors—as well as the previous generation R2—and these tires are far-superior to all of them. I have driven these in all winter conditions (slush, deep and compact snow, ice, etc.), and they inspire nothing but the utmost confidence. They’re nothing special on dry roads, but that’s to be expected from a dedicated winter tire—these aren’t “performance” winter tires. Having said that, I can still have some fun with these on a dry road and feel perfectly confident in them at highway speeds. I am a big advocate for driving according to conditions, but I actually think that anyone who dislikes these tires has not pushed them hard enough. The levels of lateral grip in snow are astonishing. Go to a snowy parking lot and see how much grip these tires actually have, if you are not satisfied with them. The harder you drive, the more they seem to grip... and this is coming from someone who is normally a very timid winter driver. For anyone wondering, the vehicle that these are attached to is an AWD Alfa Romeo Giulia... a car that also handles the snow outstandingly well.
