Driving around with my truck in the winter used to be a nightmare but now it's comfortable (and can even be a little fun). I don't do any serious off-roading but these tires dominate any dry land they have encountered. My RWD truck is still an average snow car but it was bad enough before that I wouldn't let friends/family drive it in the winter before getting new tires. Great tire and I heard a rumor they might discontinue these which would be a real shame!
Noise is fine and they handle very well on the highway.
