Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good tire for northern climates This is my first pair of snow tires, and so far they've been worth every penny after 500 miles of dry highway, snowy highway, and a mixture of plowed and unplowed backroads. They look and feel and drive like light-truck tires, and that's not at all bad. A little road noise is noticeable on the highway, but the peace of mind is preferable to a harder tire that might be more quiet. I've tested them in a Top 10 all-time snowstorm in Duluth, MN (post Thanksgiving 2019, 24 inches in 24 hours), and they did very well maintaining traction during turns, starting, stopping, and tracking straight in several inches of snow. The roads were really horrible even after a day of plowing, but the tires made everything stress free even while the plows struggled to keep up. When it came time to actually break free from the snowbank where my driveway used to be, I don't know if I would have made it out without these tires. They did spin a little, but instead of spinning, heating up, and smoking like regular all-seasons, they instead sucked the snow into the tread, hooked up, and got me going with 6–8 inches of snow underneath my vehicle (and thus directly behind the front wheels). I have no AWD. The tires did all the work. The difference in winter performance over regular, all-seasons is noticeable, to me at least. The FWD vans I have driven generally do well in snow, but often feel sketchy/out of control due to their harder rubber tires. This is the biggest difference I notice about the Evolutions, and really all snow tires—the softer rubber plus the tread really do work. On the interstate, they tend to start to howl a little above 65 mph. I don't notice the noise as much at 45–55 mph on county roads where I normally drive. If I had to drive hundreds of highway miles on dry pavement every week for work, for example, I'd probably chance it with softer all-seasons. But since I use the interstate sparingly, I'm all in for the winter rubber. It remains to be seen how well they wear. I hope to get two or three winters out of them, November to March, but we'll see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tire Just put a set on my 2016 Jetta and tested them out in Erie and Pittsburgh winter weather last week. Drove around 75 miles on I-79 North in wet slick icy snow no issues at all. I put them through a half a foot of snow in Erie could not get stuck even with traction control on. Icy conditions in Pittsburgh came around a turn hit some slick spots they bit right in with traction control and I was able to keep pointing in the right direction. Coming from other brands in the past this is a solid tire for the cost. Cooper thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tires My girlfriend & I have a manual Scion tC that is lowered 3-inches+body kit & we live in Montana. We're tire freaks & we're very impressed with the Cooper Evolution which basically is a low profile snow stud-able tire for cars, depending what series you get of course (in our case got the 50-series). We were out test driving the tires which we were very pleased with when we had to stop at an intersection on a ice+snow covered hill. Somewhat concerned on the situation but eager to find how well they performed, the tires didn't let us down. My girlfriend was so impressed her reaction was they handled so well that they deserve a review!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tire! Just bought a set of these for my 2016 RAV4 AWD. Love the look of this tire, and the ride is amazing! Very smooth and quite. Cant wait to see how the handling in inclement weather is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Winter Tire Winter tires perform differently than all seasons and other tires so my rating for the tire reflects that fact. The Cooper Evolution Winter is an outstanding winter tire. Winter has arrived early in Colorado so I got to test these extensively. I have had numerous different winter tires on different vehicles over the years and these are some of the best. Traction is excellent in all winter conditions so far. These tires resist breaking loose in hard cornering on icy packed snow very well, better than any winter tire I've had. If you are looking for a winter tire it would be hard to beat these for performance and price. Plus they are made in the USA!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from lousy ride I've purchased dedicated snow tires for all my family vehicles for over the past 20 years, so I know the characteristics to expect with the compromises necessary for this type of tire category. Bridgestones, Generals, Continentals, and Firestones in a variety of versions have been on my cars. Today I purchased a set of Evolution tires for my 2018 Impala, and the driving results were immediately different. The same city expansion joints that I'd went over 50 minutes previously went from a minor annoyance to a major hassle. Road imperfections that I drive every day now had my car bouncing and swaying. The Impala has a poised and confident suspension, but now feels as if I'm driving an old truck that needs weight in the bed to stabilize the ride. My previous nadir for road comfort with winter tires had been a set of Firestone Winterforce tires on a 2011 Chrysler 200 convertible. In just 20 miles these Evolution tires have now replaced the Firestones at the bottom of my list. I'm really dreading my daily commute back and forth to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Winter Tire for Dodge Grand Caravan Put these on a 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan. We had a longer and snowier winter than normal here in South Dakota and these tires really impressed me! Changed my front wheel drive van into almost an all wheel drive - when the tires were driven properly. And the new stopping distance on snow packed roads was amazing! I have recommended these tires to many people already and almost can't wait for next winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I just bought these tires last Dec. and have been in two snow/ice storms in S E Pennsylvania. They work great on my 05 Camry. No issues so far. They hold well in slushey ice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best winter tire I have ever purchased These tires perform great in the snow and rain on our RAV4. For those of you that did not appreciate this tires performance, it is a directional tire so make sure they are mounted going in the proper direction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can’t stop, wont stop These tires are great they plow through the deepest snow and do great on packed snow and as good as can be expected on ice. I don’t know about treadwear as I’ve only put about 500 miles on them but being a winter tire I don’t expect much. Will get these on every passenger vehicle I can and will recommend to all my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've run a lot of Winter tires, this is my new favorite! Bought these for my Daughter's Chevy Impala. I have run Blizzak, WeatherMasters, General Arctic, Nitto SN2, and several others on my Avalon over the years...NOTHING touched this tire. I live in Western CO, and drive almost 50K miles per year in total, including over every major mountain pass in Colorado and adjoining states, and I have run d every winter tire on the market. I am more impressed with these in overall performance on front wheel drive sedans, than anything else I have ever run!!! Great job, Cooper...and made in USA is awesome bonus!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Replaced Cooper WeatherMaster WSC I had a set of cooper weather master WSC on my RAV4 that I've enjoyed over the past six years. So when it was time to get the wife a new set of tires on the minivan, I looked to Cooper and was informed that the Evolution Winter replaced them. Wife is very unhappy with these tires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent in the snow I live in the snowiest town at the top of a mountain in the snowiest county in WV. Got these on a Ford Focus that I use to get stuck in my driveway.....after shoveling out. These tires got me out though the plow truck build up and a notorious part of the road that blows shut. Honestly did better than my Jeep in 4 wheel drive does. Only 1 time did traction control warning come on but I still made it a hour down the mountain.
