      I called a tire shop I usually deal with because I need winter tires....
      They suggested going with Sava Eskimo's.

      Has anyone heard about these tires? I haven't been able to find much info about them other than the fact that the shop said they're owned by Goodyear and manufactured in Slovenia.

      Any help would be appreciated.

      A quick google search got me this: http://www.euroshina.com.ua/en...mo_s3

      That's all I know about it though.

      Lately I have been testing "tip-in events". Just the tip-in. Just to see how it feels. Response time is typically on the order of 2-3 seconds. Sometimes the injection timing is a little off...

      I'd never heard of them, and figured they were probably made by the Lucky Sun Tire Company in Shanghai or something. But a little googling shows that it started in Slovenia and is now wholly owned by Goodyear.

      FWIW, this guy likes the Eskimos: http://www.canadiandriver.com/...481.0
