Only run this tire in winter months. I have driven down hyway at speed limit on slipery roads and not even realized it was slippery til I see other vehicles sliding off road. I puchased these because my driveway is very steep (usually have to put my 4x4 f350 in 4x4 to get up hill) The toyota van could not make it up hill with factory all season tires. With the blizzaks on it goes up plowing snow with front bumper. I highly recommend this for ice and snow. They are a little noisy, Would not recommend alot of dry warm weather running on them as they are soft and will wear quickly. I run the factory all seasons the rest of the year (8 months).
