I have this tire on all family vehicles and three vehicles of my adult children on wheels using from December through March in Iowa. Your surveys indicate it is either tied for superior to any and all other winter tires you sell and I would strongly agree with those surveys. I have used this tire for so many years the it used to be named Winterfire. I have referred this tire to many others, to many to cound after allowing them to drive my car when I have them mounted. Every single one of them eventually purchase this tire for their autos. My wife's 1999 Dodge Intrepid FWD has them and it surpasses performance of most 4WD vehoicles under any winter condition it Iowa. Anyone and everyone who lives in a area with winter conditions should consider this tire or at a minimum another winter tire from your seletion.
