    I haven’t used those specifically but have tried various other cheap brands of winter tires.

    I think I am going to try those cheap winter tire again, I have those "Zata" winter tires on my Audi for 3 year, so far so good, no complaint. Are they good? At least they do the job, and $240 a tire vs $700.. why not? ��

    Federal is pretty reputable. Have had a set on my odyssey for several winters. Very good. Job sells Federal.

    These only work if they are going on a regular old low power commuter car in my experiences. Years ago I bought a set for my 135i, and the tread blocks were so tall and soft it made the car nearly undriveable on pavement, traction control would trigger just driving around normally.

    I have a set of summer Ironman tires on the fit.. They seem decent, no complaints but it's a fit and it so under powered..

    That is true. I bought my sister a set of Himalaya WS2's, they work wonderful on that FWD beast. Soft like a Michelin X-Ice. But theres so many China tires nowadays, its hard to say which is good, which is bad. Westlake, Zeta, Rovelo, Laufenn. In my books, a cheap winter tire is better than an expensive all-season for winter.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    310hp is a lot for a FWD car.

    Wheel hop and torque steer must be a bitch. I'd want some decent tires that would help mitigate those issues.

    You will still have a significant amount of torque out of a GM 3.6. IMO 1010 carries Ironman and sounds like it's a noisy tire but everyone seems to agree that get what you pay for.

    I won't pay more than $100 per corner for these brands.

    Go talk to UrbanExpression. They do have these low cost options even if it's not the exact same brand.
