Got a set yesterday. These replaced my kumho 711s which wore out in less than 12k miles and since they were a summer tire, couldn't grip in the rain at all. The asx all seasons are slightly smaller in profile at a 255/50/17 vs. a 255/55/17 for the 711. Handling isn't as sharp as the 711 in the dry due to softer sidewalls and just grip in general, but (it rained yesterday) it's very secure in any wet weather and should be ok for snow. If you're not turning and burning through canyons on a regular basis i think these are better tires than the 711. Commuting daily about 80 miles the better ride quality and treadlife is a bit more important now lol.
