Hard to go wrong for $250!DOT date is late 2019 on all 4. I checked yesterday.
I sent him an email asking if he would take $250.
I think I'll get them either way. The shorter life expectancy doesn't bother me a whole lot. For half the money I think it's worth a shot. Who knows, I may sell the car before the tires wear out.
The tread pattern looks to be more what I want for deer season and winter. Plus they are 105T as opposed to the Hankook's 111T. I'm thinking they'll ride a bit smoother. Right now I have 107T's
Winter traction is not all that great with these.
It's an OE tire, compounding is geared to smooth/quiet.
