Interesting... they have big meaty tread. I don't drive in the winter so I can't attest to winter traction...

I drove 275/315 toyo 4+s through 2 winters in south dakota and a road trip through a blizzard down to Idaho with no problems in a cammed FBO M6. Great tires in my opinion. Cant speak to the Motivos

Toyos proxies 4 plus a/s all the way, but on that note tt and alot of 2nd gear runs for tuning really shorten there life

I've been using the Motivos since my first tire change. Good all season tire. Nice balance between performance & tread life.

I have the motives on my SS rims. Great all season tire. If I need to drive my car in below 40* weather, I put these on. Had them before I went zl1 wheels. Very satisfied.
