These are great tires. I have been waiting for snow to see how they do and just had the opportunity. They did a great job! it handled well, no sliding or loss of traction and went around many cars who were stuck. I selected these tires based on the snow rating and found it was great. Even though we don't get much snow in Bellevue, WA when we do the conditions can be bad and for drives it can be a challenge. This past snow was bout 2 and it was below freezing so under the snow was ice. The tires drove through the snow very easily and when I was caught going up an incline where other cars were stuck or sliding I just drove around them with no traction issues. The tires are a little noisy but so far I would highly recommend them.
