Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpected grip from a dead stop in multiple types of snow/ice cover and temperatures I buy a lot of summer performance tires, all season Radials and truck tires for our 5 daily drivers. I’m a former auto tech and have done all of my own work for over 40 years. I have tire and balance, alignment machines and build modified cars and trucks. I know and trust the Cooper brand and have always had them on my 1953 Chevy hotrod pickup truck that I’ve owned since 1990. Sorry for rambling but experience is relevant because I was somewhat shocked at the grip delivered by these Cooper Evolution Winters as was my wife after I mounted a set on the front of her front wheel drive SUV. So far it’s the beginning of February in Wisconsin and these things are super effective. WARNING they grip so well from a dead stop on ice and snow that they give you a false sense of security so remember that when you have to BRAKE : ) Wear seems to be very good after three months I’ll update when we get 25,000 miles or so. Uncle Cooper is dead right on these, Go with the Coopers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, but treadlife is the tradeoff 5,000 miles on these on a Hyundai Accent in upstate NY. 10/32 left, so I expect them to last about 15k-20k total before they are down too low to use in winter . That's 2.5 winters for us. And this is a very light car. We've had lots of snow. They are designed for deep snow, and for that, they are pretty good. We live at the top of a steep country road, and then our driveway is steep on top of that. Only once have I not gotten up the driveway yet. It was about 6" of snow and it was the slick as opposed to the fluffy kind. I decided to drop the pressure down to 25 and I made it. These replaced Michelin x-ice xi3 which were the worst snow tires I've ever used. I cannot fathom how they get so many good reviews. Sure they last a long time, but they don't grip. The Coopers are much better in all conditions. On the interstate on a bad day in very slick conditions the car was very easy to handle at about 45 mph. Emergency braking, we had a deer run in front of us on a snowy road once, and the tires never lost their grip. Road noise, whatever. Good snow tires are going to make noise. I don't mind. If I get 3 winters out of these I'll buy again. If it's 2, I'll be on the fence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Choice For Myself! I work in the industry so I've either drove or rode in a vehicle with all of main competitors. (X-Ice, Blizzack's, ect.) While any snow tire is 100 times better than any all-season and MOST all-weather tires in the snow; Very few of them can compete in the queitness and comfort categories when it's just dry & cold outside instead of wet/icy & cold. These Evo Winters are something special though! They're more enjoyable to drive on than my current all season summer tires (Conti Tour A/S+). Granted, they won't last as long as my summer set, I don't really care either. The drive is just more enjoyable. As for the other posts that you've read about them being noisy, I'm willing to bet they didn't have the right people, following the best procedures, with the newest equipment available doing their installation. For those of you not in the industry, simply ask your installer to take the time and get the road force readings AS LOW AS POSSIBLE. With Hunter equipment, it's called 180*-matching. Basically the balancer machine measures the tire twice and then the tire is moved to be optimized on the wheel. Usually the process costs an EXTRA $10-15/tire but when done correctly, it's worth the money! Ask your installer and find out how out of round your assemblies are. If you paid for the extra service, they should provide you with a beginning measurement and a final measurement for each assembly. If the measurements seem unusually high, the wheels that your new tires are mounted on may need to be replaced as well. Daily driving can bend wheels easily depending on road conditions and driving styles. Typically for passenger rated tires on Hunter equipment, a road force measurement of 35-40 is "acceptable". All the big manufacturers require a reading of below 20 in order to ship it on the car that they're trying to sell to you. Having the equipment and unlimited time, I got my set to read 7-10. The entire process took apx. 1 hour to complete by myself. Hopefully, this info helps a few of you pick out a great product and have the knowledge before installation to get the most out of your tire-buying experience! Buy these tires, pick out a REPUTABLE installer and ask about the equipment they have available before-hand. Best wishes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Michelin watch out!!!!!!! Put these on all for corners to replace the crap x-ice 3 's I had on my car.No comparison . We had the first snow fall of the season back in November ,about 4" ,10cm and had the x-ice ice on the car which came from the dealer. I was all over the road. A 20 minute drive turned into 45 minute white knuckle nightmare. These evolution winters are amazing . Have driving in deeper snow since . Awesome traction ,quite, and a excellent ride. Will never purchase anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Winter Tires in the snow I have had other winter tires in the past but the Cooper Evolution are easily the best I have had on snow covered roads. They are still quiet enough that I don't notice a difference vs my all seasons. Very satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time buying snow tires After a few Minneapolis winters and having my Matrix buried by snow plows, I finally purchased my first set of snow tires. Really happy I did and the Cooper Evolution Winter were recommended to me as a slightly cheaper alternative to the Blizzaks. Takes corners well and shorter stopping time on ice but best performance so far has been through the snow and not drifting while gassing it at intersection lights. The four instead of five stars is because I don't have anything to compare it to. I have noticed that the few times I have been on the highway that they are noisier than my all weather. Overall, I am happy I did it. I grew up driving in the snow in light weight foreign cars and used to driving sideways but sick and tired of getting stuck when ever there is more than 2 inches of snow. These tires make it feel like I am driving an AWD, its amazing. Can't wait for the big snows to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Winter performance! Put them on in November and since I have had no issues with their dry performance. Recently had the first sizable snow storm of the year, we had just over 6" of snow. Not only that my car is a RWD sports car. With these tires I was able to get around rural streets in half a foot of snow with no problems. Gave me a whole lot of confidence on the road when I wouldn't of even made it out of the driveway without these tires. First timer with the Cooper brand and am pleased to say the least.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far! I put these tires on my winter car, a 2008 Toyota Yaris. The car is very light so it is hard to get a bite.. These tires have done it in the snow and ice that we have received in the Adirondack Mountains so far this season. I highly recommend this as a first choice for a winter tire.
