They were pretty good tires. Went to Vermont when they were just installed. Had to drive through deep snow and they worked great. Had a issue with ice though but thankfully stability control saved my day! Road feels seemed muted than OEM tires so I ran these with more tire pressure than stock (36psi) to firm them up. Wet traction when new was excellent as well. However the tread wear was not as good as advertised. I rotated the tires every 7500 miles but they were bald by 38,000. Went with Kumo Ecsta 4x this time based on price and performance. If you can get a good deal on DWS, and get alot of snow in the winter but don't drive too many miles, these are good tires.
