If you live in a snow climate, do not get the Toyo's. Worse tire I ever bought. They were good the first season (last year) and this year, they are absolute crap and hasn't even started snowing yet. This is just in the rain. I slide everywhere with giving it the littlest of throttle. I've had other drivers in my car complain about them as well. I will be buying a new set of all seasons before this winter.

Yeah not the best tire for the winter Matt...... I am a true believe that there is no All season tire that can substitute a true winter tire IMO... My Toyos were giving me issues with just a few inches of snow last year on the highway and felt I had to tippy toe when driveing the Jeep.

Yeah, that's how I feel with them now in this rain we've been having. Going to try the DWS which was my original choice, but they were on nation backorder.

Yeah, I just didn't want to buy two sets of wheels and tires. I'll give the DWS a try and if those don't work, then buying a monster truck like Dan for winter time. LOL.

You can see my thread for pics and more info....I did lots of research and read a ton of reviews. If you want an all season that performs well in all categories go with the Motivos. I was the first here to get them and at least 5 others have since I did. Super quiet, awesome ride- soooo smooth and grippy and good steering response. Fine in the rain too. Snow is next up lol. BTW if you are considering the Conti DWS, these will kick the Contis ass on dry as far as grip, cornering and steering response, and likely equally good in rain/light snow.
