Excellent tire performance!!! I never would have imagined this performance with a tire that I could actually pinch. The tread is flexible to the touch, but wears wonderfully! Even my mechanic/tire man is amazed at these tires! I bought these tires after a winter during which I dug myself out of every ditch on the side of my 1/4 mile long driveway. I had absolutely NO problem going in inclement weather or snow with these tires!!! It is totally amazing!!! I will say, however, that once the tread is down to the wear-bars, I do not feel as much in control while driving in rain. During a recent trip in heavy rain, even with a 2 ton vehicle, I experienced some hydroplaning. Time for new tires, and it will be these, again!
