First impression: Snow is a joke with these tires

GREAT in snow, like epically good. I can do highway speeds on a snow covered road and feel perfectly stable. The largest increase in snow performance was the braking. These stop you so well in the snow. They are surprisingly quiet when cruising. However if brake, accelerate, or take a corner they make a fair bit of noise. There is a good quarter to half second lag between the steering input and the tire response. That is to be expected with this type of tire though. If your expecting alot of snow, these are a good bet.
