Takrdown - I actually just replaced the front left with another, new, Hankook V12. Whether or not that was the smart thing to do is up for discussion, but I didnt want a single tire to be different then the other three. So I actually still have all 4 Hankooks on.
Brusk - I only had my winters on for about 3 months or so ( Toronto, not so bad lately ) but the pull wasn't as bad. It was there if I recall correctly, but the two highways I drive on tend to be fairly sloped on the left most lane, which is where I always drive. So i will say it was there, but no where close to as bad as with the Hankooks.
