UPDATE, so far these tires are awesome! Road noise is in check(the power plant under the hood is louder than these tires ) and they look mean as hell! Now just have to wait to see how they do in the snow! So far very pleased with the look, the ride and especially the price!

They sure look good! I’d be interested in hearing your feedback in snow; more specifically, packed snowy roads. That’s where most hybrids seem to fall short due to their lack of siping. I was also surprised to learn that the EXP’s are a two-ply sidewall; they look plenty beefy, though.

I have just about 5,000 miles on my set now and no complaints. The tread has a high silica compound, so it should help on hard packed snow. I ran these in some snow conditions this spring and they did well. I will predict that as these tires get more exposure, the price will go up. Right now they are the least expensive made in US tire I sell and I think they are 40 to 50 dollars a tire under priced. Get them while the getting is good.

Good to know about the hard pack snow! As for the price I was thinking the same thing... they are a cheap tire for how meaty yet quiet they are in addition to the 45,000 mile tread wear warranty.... the only thing that comes close that I can think if is Goodyear Duratracs and those are almost $80 more per tire!
