I bought these tires for my winter vehicle because I needed a tire that was good in the snow along with good mileage warranty. I have been very impressed with these tires. Great tread wear, very little road noise and have a very comfortable ride. They do fantastic in the snow. My other vehicle is a 1995 Grand Cherokee and it has new tires but not these and I seem to get better braking traction with these than my General Grabbers on the Jeep. Acceleration traction is awesome in the snow. Little slip in the ice but that is with any tires. Would definitely recommend these tires to anyone looking for new tires and is maybe considering snow tires. These will do the job of both snow and touring tires.
