great overall tire - am extremely pleased with the snow traction and how stable it feels while driving in slush, snow, ice, etc. living near the lake, there is always a lot of lake effect snow - lots of white outs etc, and these tires are unreal when it comes to handling in the snow and slush. i would highly recommend these to anyone who needs to drive in the snow. fantastic grip. as with any tire, its going to take a while to slow and stop in those conditions, but while at normal speed limits for the roads, these are unbeatable unless you have actual snow tires, but these are about as close as you can come without buying blizzaks or something. the dry tractions is really good too, cornering is nimble. driving in the rain? might as well be driving on dry roads. great tire. great value. buy them.
