I was recently in Mammoth and was able to thoroughly test them out on some wide empty roads. They really made for some fun sporty driving on the snow. Sometimes when I thought the X1 would loose grip and skid, the tires held their ground. They also have great acceleration and stopping ability. On dry pavement they are smoother quieter than expected although you do loose some road feel. When winter is over I will be looking for non RFTs performance tires to replace the stock Pirelli Cinturatu P7's (I can't stand them).
