Drive mostly city, can not beat these treads for their winter traction on snow, ice or rain. Surprisingly quiet tire that gives a soft ride commensurate to my Caddy. On my long private drive I use these tires mostly for squashing squirrels and other random critters. These Conti's can pancake a rodent in one pass while not spilling a full cup of coffee on the console. I am totally sold on these road killers.
