No comparative experience, but I can testify that the Asymetrico is
a very good snow tire for dry road handling. This is perfect along the
Colorado front range where we get a fair amount of snow that
melts quickly leaving roads dry most of the winter. Other winter
tires I have tried, such as the original Blizzaks, are better on ice but
squishy and scary on dry pavement. With the P 210s, I no longer
dread the winter tire change over.
