Just bought these tires. The day after I put them on, we had about 14 or 15 inches of snow come down very quickly. I drove down an un-plowed highway and i didn't even need to slow down. In fact, the only problem I ran into was that sometimes the car didnt have enough power to maintain speed at some of the really bad spots. I drove into 3 very long driveways where the snow was at least 4 inches above my bumper, and the car just pushed on through. I was even able to back up, spin the car around, and drive off with no problem whatsoever. They give off a little bit of noise, but nothing to complain about by any means. Braking response is fantastic, and so is cornering in the snow. The only thing i really notice with these tires that you could say would be a negative would be that on perfectly dry pavement, they feel what could best be described as sloppy, as if the car was full of water sloshing back and forth. Other than that, i can't see anything i could complain about. Now, they are brand new, so we'll see how they are after a few thousand kilometers, but I think I will be pleased until the day I have to take them off.
