Some drivers hate them and others love these tires. I have had Michelins on trucks and vans and I have been pleasantly surprised by these tires. Solid in the deep snow, ice and rain. A little noisier than my old Michelin A/T's but appear to perfom slightly better on all types of roads and conditions, especially deep snow and ice! I rotate every 5,000 miles when I change the oil and have noticed evan wear throughout. Great job Bridegestone, I have renewed faith in your tire line.
