Purchased these with a winter wheel package and have not had any issues at all. Excellent traction in snow slush and slick conditions. Tire does well for upstate NY winter driving on thruway and rural rds. I put up alot of miles as I did not change them off this summer and they are still going strong. Some very slight tread noise on dry pavement which I can't hear unless stereo is off and electric drive only is on;but they are an aggressive tread and worth it.
No negative effect on mpg in the Fusion Hybrid with the change from oem tire noticed.
I'm buying a new set this winter and the price for what you get is great.
