Our other car is a Chevy Volt (primarily driven by my wife) and I absolutely hate the LRR tires; we're on our second Volt and the Gen 1 had Goodyears, the Gen 2 has Michelin. The LRR "All-Weather" rated tires are downright scary in inclement weather and particularly in snow, probably due to a harder rubber compound, a fairly "closed" tread pattern, and optimization for mileage vs. traction. On snowy days, she drives my 9000 Aero with snow tires.
In addition, the sidewalls are paper-thin. "We" have had to replace three tires due to sidewall damage in the past 13 months on the new car, and several on the previous Volt - did not have anything like this when she was driving an Audi with All-Weather tires previously.
