Got these tires last year in preparation for the snow season, glad I did. In last week's blizzard in NY, I was able to drive in the worst of the storm. I wasn't driving 55 mph, but still on the highways I was able to keep up with the SUVs with my Acura TL without feeling like the car was slipping and sliding.
Had the BS RE960's before these...which were horrible in the snow. Now on dry pavement these tires will have a little road noise, the RE960's were better in dry weather. But the benefits of the snow traction more than make up for it. Would definitely buy again.
