Default New AS Tires

I was shopping for a set of new YOKO Advan EN-Vigor on my WRX, I had them on for good 40K . but the shop guy instead convinced me to opt for the Cooper ZEOPN s3-A. And they look really good...loved the tread pattern.

Rreviews online where generally good too..anyone had experience driving up to the slopes with those?

No experience with those, but I can tell you that the Michelin Pilot A/S 3 is one of if not THE best all season tires on the market, with handling as close to a summer tire as you can get but still a beast in the snow.

I'm sure, but the price was really good $544 all included. The YOKO would end up around $ 750. They had a deal going on, with that otherwise unknown (to me) brand.

I've had Cooper tires before (although not that model) and I was pretty happy with the purchase. No better or worse than a mid-level model from any of the big names and a lot cheaper. Good wear, good traction, good handling.

Now all I need is HW 88 covered with half a foot of untracked, while I drive up to Kirkwood. Can't wait.

I hope they're better than the Cooper Zeons I had on my Tahoe. Horrible tires. Wore quick and were downright dangerous in the snow. Went back to my good old tried and true Goodyear Silent Armors.

I'm in the same boat. Looking for new HP AS tires for my A3. I've been reading some excellent reviews on the General G-Max AS-03. I hate spending >$500 on a set of tires.



I look forward to reading more input.

with AS tires you still need a good dose of common sense when driving... I saw trucks with mud tires spinning out due to driver's inexperience...and locals driving up and passing everybody on a civic with just front snow tires.
