Just wondering whether the 2011's are still coming with a mix of Hankook Optimo H725 and Michelin Latitude Tour tires? What have your opinions been so far of each tire in rain, snow, dry, etc...

On the 2011's, The 19" upgraded wheels come with Hancook (they are so, so). the 17" wheels come with the Michelin Latitude Tour (top rated).
Not sure what comes on the 18" upgraded wheels.

I have a 2011 with the 19" wheels and will run the hancook tires until they're done but wouldn't dare run them in the winter months. I have Michelin Latitude x-Ice for that.

We went through last winter with the stock 19" Hankooks.
At least 6 snow storms of 6 or more inches, no problems.
Mostly suburban and city driving, some back roads that are paved and have 15 ft. deep ditches.
Yikes!
One ski trip to Crystal Mountain, MI. last Feb., no prob.

Drive smart and don't get cocky cuz you have winter tires and AWD.
That won't help you one bit come black ice!
We are running the Hankooks until the tread depth is not safe.

I've run the 19" Hankooks on the AWD for about 12,000km and on the FWD for 6,000km (picked up the AWD last December) and they've been fine. I find them to be a very 'hard' tire and they are noisier than I'd like, but they're no worse or better than any other tire I've ever had on a vehicle in all weather conditions.
