Latest Hankook Winter i pike RS2 Reviews

Given 97% while driving a Volvo S70 T5 (205/55 R16 T) on a combination of roads for 1,500 spirited miles
-The best winter tire I've driven so far (and there is plenty), pretty huge improvement on ice handling compared to iPike RS due to the added studs and a new pattern, you can really push your limits in corners before it start to lose side grip, but even then it corrects so fast and easy, losing the rear end is almost impossible even with a little help from the handbrake.

-Day to day driving in at normal conditions, feels pretty much the same as driving at summer. Even while having 250 horses front the front wheels, I don't really find any trouble on accelerating harder. Braking distance feels as good as it can feel with an older car ABS only.

-Tire noise was quite surprising, inside the car, can't really tell if I'm running studs or not. Comfort, well its there as the 55 profile suggest.

-Can't really say about the wear yet, but if these have anything in common with the previous iPikes, they will last you for few years easily.

I was so happy for these tires that I bought a new set for my fiancee too, and even she was impressed. At its price point I can only recommend these.
