        Quiet and Smooth Ride

              I really like these winter performance tires on my 2012 BMW 328i, actually more so than the standard run flats that came with the car. They are both quiet and provide a smooth ride while still providing the handling that I expect with a sports sedan. Traction in snow and on wet pavement has been excellent. I highly recommend them.

              Second Set for me

                    Living in Colorado makes dedicated winter tires a must if you spend anytime in the mountains. I bought my first set of Alpin PA3s for my 4.2L Audi A6 two winters ago. A sidewall puncture during our most recent week-long subzero Arctic freeze required a complete new set and I did not hesitate to get a new set. They are extremely quiet and handle so well on snow and ice that you can drive as aggressively as you do on dry pavement. They are also excellent on dry pavement which unfortunately allows you to leave them on longer than necessary, probably resulting in premature wear. I love them.

                    Winter Tire for Honda Sport Fit

                          Bought Primacy Alpin PA3 winter tires (mounted on after-market alloy wheels) for my(then new) 2009 Honda Sport Fit. Then there were very few choices in 185/55R16 size, so I went with tire-dealer-recommended 195/60R15 on 15"-6.5" wheel. Very happy with this winter-use-only tire, and also with this size tire on the car. Just changed over to start fifth year. The car sticks, steers, tracks and stops better in wintry cold, wet, snowy or icy conditions than the stock all-season tires. Wife and I both appreciate the extra safety factor and feeling of confidence during 3 winter months The tires show very little wear, look like new. Would definitely recommend.
