I have a high performance car and had tons of issues last winter(without these tires) even in just a dusting of snow. I purchased these snow tires for this winter as I did not want to have the same issues again. These tires were the best investment I have ever made. We have had record snow this year and I have had no issues whatsoever getting to my destinations safely and without issue. We have also had ice conditions and record rain. No issues with any weather condition. I was told that snow tires would make the drive uncomfortable and loud. That has not been the case at all. They perform well and there is little to no noise. Thank you Bridgestone and Tire Rack!
