Nahoa...winter tire wear pattern?

How are the tires wearing? Cupping?

So far, so good. Maybe 1000 miles. Can see indication of wear on the outside where the cupping was on the previous set by change of color. No sign of cupping yet, tires still quiet. Was another poster here who seemed to have similar wear on their OEMs after about 13.5k. What are you seeing? (Or was that you?) If not beforehand, will report when I swap them back out this Spring.

I still experience a vibration at 80 mph, but only notice it on a section of freeway that's particularly smooth. Jumps out there very distinctly. Doesn't move the steering wheel if I lift my hands. On rougher (typical) roads it just blends in. Has me kind of baffled, really.

Wasn't I that posted. But so far, so good. I'm at about 11.8M with the Bridgestones and the wear pattern seems to be fine. No problems with vibrations or pulling. Ok, now I'm running around furiously to find wood to knock on!
