I musf say though in all other conditions they are just fine.
Hmm I have driven in the rain and not found that to be the case at all. I previously had the Nitto 420s and these are better than they were in wet. Of course when its wet you shouldn't be driving like speed racer either

RF'd, installed, and aligned the brand new Motivo 275/315s yesterday and smooth as glass compared to the GY runcraps! My daily commute has a couple rough bumps I try to avoid due to the jostling, and with these tires today, feels like an air cushion. Much quieter then the GYs! I could take a nap on the way home

So far so good, only dry driving today....

Awesome! Yes they are SILENT and ride very nice. And no mushy sidewall like the Contis so they corner quite well and good steering response. I did drive in the rain and they seem fine. Up next, snow lol.

i thought i would share a few photos with this thread.. just had my 275/315 motivo set up installed yesterday. i also had the Tire Siping done on them as well for a little extra benefit as this is my daily driver out here in CO.. i can feel the improvement in the ride already.

Looks good! How much did they charge for the siping? I always wondered whether that would make any real difference. But you say you can feel a difference...is it more in the traction or just a nicer ride? I think the Motivos ride really smooth as they are.

thanks! i think they charge $10-$12 bucks per tire. he "worked around" that charge for me though so i didnt have that extra expense.. whether it makes a difference you really can notice or feel, that is difficult to say.. other than reading up on it with that link that i posted. i have always siped my tires just for the small added benefit it is supposed to provide.. but it is a much smoother ride so far (siped or not siped) compared to the nitto 420's that i was running before this set up.. as far as the traction on these goes i am anxious to find out here soon once we start to get some weather out here..

Yeah I would think there may me a minor improvement in traction, so for you it may make some difference in snow/ice. And I too had the 420s and although I liked em, they were a tad noisy and the Motivos are super quiet and have a smoother ride. Great in the wet too as we just had 10 inches of rain from Sandy, so I had a good opportunity to test them out. The 420s were average in wet and not much good in snow.

Looking for some more input on the Motivos. I'm seriously considering them in the next few weeks to replace my worn out Invos.

What would my fellow drivers suggest for new tires. I live in New england so all season is a must but i dont want to sacrifice performance. Any input would be a big help
