If you drive in winter, buy these tires! I have been using them for almost 10 years on every type of vehicle you can imagine: '07 F-150, '07 Caravan, '10 Fusion, '84 Plymouth Gran Fury Police Pkg, several Crown Vics and Dodge Diplomats, '05 Escape, and on and on... On the vehicles equipped with 4x4, you won't need to engage 4x4 most of the time - just these tires will get you through. I really miss the old Firestone Town & Country snows with the deep agressive lugs. These are just as good even though the slogan Firestone used to use with the Town & Country "you go in the snow, or we pay the tow" isn't around anymore lol. One night while coming out of work to 12+ inches of snow I had the RWD Gran Fury with 4 Winterforces and coworkers on each side of my car had their 4x4 Explorers and we had all gotten plowed in. The Fury muscled through the deep snow and the Explorers with all season tires were both stuck! I usually get around three winters use out of them, swapping them on Nov 1st and off May 1st. I highly recommend these tires!
