LOVE these tires. Finally splurged and got a dedicated set of winter tires and I'm so happy I did. For the first year of ownership I just drove with OEM Yoko Geolanders and honestly I was questioning my reasoning for buying a Subaru - I did not like the snow/ice capabilities of that tire at all (there were a couple times where I just slid straight when trying to turn). However these new tires are amazing. Here in VT they take their sweet time clearing the roads when big storms hit, yet I feel confident and safe taking my car for a spin if need be. I plowed right through 10" fresh snow no problem on our street before the plows came through. Great traction and I have no worries when I travel home from work (45 mins) during a storm. Heck, I prefer taking the back roads now rather than the highway and enjoy the calm scenery and spirited trek home. Will definitely be purchasing another set once these are used up, great tire for New England winter conditions, especially when paired w/ my trusty AWD Subaru.
