Well, we can't expect track like performance from all season continental tires, but they're fine for everyday use and there shouldn't be any tire slips.
And you're not going to get track like performance out of the Kona anyway. It's an SUV, not a Sport SUV or a performance SUV. There are very few of those, if any actually. :wink: Engine placement is wrong, front to rear brake bias is wrong, nix the FWD, wheelbase balance point is wrong and to much forward weight. This is exactly why the Kona over steers, like every other SUV on the market. Drop it 2-4", add stiffer struts and springs, move the engine rearward 6" and make it rear wheel drive you might get it to drive more neutral. However, it does pretty well if you're aware of the over steer and know how to get around it.:smile_big:

Oh yea, I forgot about the All-season tires too.
