I own a 2009 ford fusion FWD. In the middle of a snow storm, with at least 3in. on the ground and unplowed, I was able to not only get stuck but was actually passing vehicles. There were full sized pickups, HUMMERS, Jeeps, subaru's that couldn't go where I did. I contribute being able to do that only to these tires. A must buy for any winter weather area.
