Newbe

Went down to local Jeep dealer 3 weeks ago on a Friday just to test drive a new 2011 Compass Latitude AWD. Ended up taking it home with me on Monday.
I love it. I was worried about the 2.4 and CVT trans thinking it wouldn't have enough power but the more I drive it the more I like it. I live in Michigan and drive 35 miles one way to work mostly E-way driving and wanted something with better mileage that could handle the snow and bad weather we get. The only thing I am doing is getting rid of is the F-stone tires. I'am putting on some Hankook H727 225/60-R17 tires on Monday. I will let everyone know how the are once I get some miles on them.

Well I've got over 14000 miles on the Han-kook tires, and they look like new. Still handle and ride great.

I"m a little surprised that they would get negative revies, I had them on my previous patriot and can say nothing but good things about them.

Read about them in this thread;

They're a summer tire for sure looking at it. I was thinking they were a winter tire from reading the first post on them.

Currently and for oh since 1997 at least I run Winter rated snowflake tires year round on all my vehicles. I have not had summer only tires for at least 20 years.
