I read all the reviews here before I purchased these tires. We just had a 3 inch snow and took the car out to test the tires. They performed very well, a HUGE improvement over my all seasons that came on the car. However I've read reviews that say these tires turned there car into a 4wheel drive vehicle.. No that is not accurate. On hills, if I tried to accelerate at a medium rate, my tires would spin and the traction control would come on. I can compare this directly to my other car, a Subaru legacy with all season tires.. my subaru didn't slip one bit during the same snow. In other words, these tires are very good for snow, but they DO NOT make your vehicle capable like a 4wheel drive!
