i have had mine for a couple months now & i am very pleased with them. the ride comfort, dry condition turn handling & performance to me has been great so far. i have no issues or concerns. i used to run the nitto 420's & these motivos are 10x better.. im sure the others on here may chime in on their opinions..

i dont believe the motivo will come in the 305 size you have mentioned. i also need a good year round performance tire out here in CO & that is why i chose this tire, so this would be a good option for you out there as well. we have not had enough snow or wet weather yet other than today to be able to report enough info on the handling in the wet/snow. i tested a little bit today with light snow pack on the roads with braking hard and they seem decent & responsive. i also have them safety siped for a little extra grip. and as i mentioned above dry performance is good..

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

I changed from 275/315 Invos to Motivos on Saturday afternoon. Only driven about 100 miles so far on them so I can't comment just yet. But I like the 60k mileage warranty. Paid $1249 out the door for all 4, and will be getting a $30 Visa/Mastercard rebate card.
