    Think these would be fine for occasional snow as well? Live in Az so will probably only see snow as often as I go hit the slopes... may make it to CO/UT/NM next winter but having a hard time justifying winters/all seasons...

    cant wait to get the winter tires off, I wanted them off last month but it did not work out that way. Should handle really well w/ the coopers.

    Finally got the chance to put them on first thing this morn. I only live 6 miles from tire warehouse so I dont have much of a review on them yet. I'll see how they do on Hurricane Mountain Road in NH later this summer.

    Bear notch is the road that connects the Kanc to 302 about half way in. It is super curvy and very smooth. I am sure you have driven it, but if not, then it is a must drive! It is closed in the winter but should be open by now.

    My one experience on the Kanc was a wash. The way out it was pouring rain, the next day on the way back I was stuck behind a super slow biker 80% of the road. Definitely would've been a fun road in optimal conditions, I imagine a side road off of it would be even better.
