Have three Saabs, all with different winter tires, I have found these to be the best of the three, in New England's sleet, freezing rain, slush and snow. One of the best snow tires I've had in years. Quiet for winter tires and traction in deep snow is superb, compared to my other 9-3s equipped with ice-x's and winterforces. Wear looks good, but only have 3000mi on them. Would recommend them to anyone driving in unpredictable weather.
