Second season on our minivan. Been through a few snows,but none more than 4 inches. Tire is great through slush and snow. Wet and dry traction is very good. Noise is what I expected. Like any snow tire the handling response is not the same as all season tires but that is what I expect. No issues at all on highways etc. My teenagers drive the van so I relax when it snows. Liked the tires so much, I bought 4 for our Optima my wife drives. Will be buying a third set for my car next winter.
