At the time of purchase of my 2018 Kona AWD 1.6T car, it had Goodyear Touring all seasons.They no longer make this exact tire. It was the "sport" upgrade to the car's top two models package, a "good looking tire" if that has value. https://ourautoexpert.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Hyundai-Kona-Whl.jpg
We received our first snowfall in Minnesota and these tires were greasy and REALLY horrible in snow (1 inch), way worse then any UHP tire I have owned. After running the Goodyears for 4 months and a full winter coming, and knowing in early spring I was purchasing new rims and tires for the summer, I bought my go to Conti DWS 06 and sold the Goodyears on Craigslist. I went through 2 sets in 3 weeks because of major flat spotting with no luck. I switched out to Discounts Tire exclusive version of the equivalent of the DWS 06 that the general manager suggested were far better manufacture wish then the DWS 06, going from a "better" tire to a "Best " tire category. Conti Contact Sport A/S had a stiffer sidewall and an ok A/S tread pattern and is a UHP tire. It fixed my flat spotting problem by 80% and they handled better then the soft DWS 06. That is my current winter tire on OEM rims package since I like to "sport drive" during the winter and don't want non sportive, bad handling winter tires. Yes, I do know there are ok ones for "fluff" driving, but I hit exit ramps at 80 mphs and hold full G's and would trash them in one winter.https://cdn.discounttire.com/sys-master/images/h39/h92/8811419992094/conhzd.ang.l.jpg
Since I bought a new car, put 2 sets of new tires on my car and my daughters car, both $800 each set when done and are buying new rims and another set of tires I had to compromise on tires for the now newly lowered Kona AWD 1.6T. It was between Michelin Pilot Sport 4S is 200 wear tire or a more long lasting a less grippe 500 wear Pilot Sport A/S 3 Plus (UHP). I had to ever compromise more since money had to go to other mods on the car. I went with the General G-Max-05's and 4 new rims on their rebate and newly acquired credit card discount deal and saved $400 on the tire and rim set. Here it is on my 2 inch lowered Kona AWD 1.6T. https://www.hyundaikonaforum.com/showcase/2018-kona-awd-1-6t-lowered.1162/
The General's are a UHP tire and actually a really nice cheap sport tire. Very precise steering as said in Tire Rack's test. I think later in the summer I want a better tire and may go with the 500 wear Pilot Sport UHP A/S 3 Plus tire and sell the almost half worn G-Max-05 on Cragslist. I just can't justify a 200 wear tire at this time. $900 a season vs $800 every 2 years works better for me. I will lose some grip but the A/S 3 Plus is the BEST handling UHP tire out there. I just hope I won't chew/chunk them up when I do a couple of autocross's. I will have to drive just below chunk time since my car is classed with 500hp Subi STI fully time attacked out, so no hope on winning anyway, just for fun.
So after all this, what do I see a UHP tire is best used for?? A better wearing sport tire 500 wear then a 200-300 wear "summer tire" and they don't have the 35 degree "no go zone" attached to them. They "kinda work" in the snow, and may be just hair worst in the snow, then a 700 wear Touring tire.
