In the winter months I take my little fwd, six cylinder camry up to the ski hill in some pretty gnarly conditions that some people wouldn't drive in. One time we had a good snow dump and the plow trucks had plowed earlier that morning, but when I decided to travel up the fairly steep road, it had about an inch of snow on it with a fairly slippery/ shiny undersurface, and on my studded winter force tires (and my confidence in them) I was able to maintain a speed of 40 mph all the way up with little to no slip or slide and I am sure the people behind me were fairly impressed whenever they caught a glimpse of my increasingly distant car. When the turn off to the mountain came, in celebration I had to pull the e brake and slide the whole off camber corner going 30 and the tires responded awesome and did what I wanted them to do. Couldn't be happier and will definitely buy these tires for every car I own!!
