No changes to report. I don't really put many miles on my car.
The PG still works as it's supposed to.
Driving in snow is a new experience.
With both wheels always turning I have more traction when the wheels are perfectly straight, but less when the wheels are turned like I posted before.
I haven't had any trouble but I have to be extra cautious in the snow with these particular tires.
I wouldn't recommend the Kumo Ecsta tires to anyone. They're junk and hard as rocks and terrible in the snow.
I'll be going back to Fuzion HRi next time. Those are awesome all-season tires.
