This tire is great for winter traction. I ordered these with studs and couldn't be happier with their performance. Anchorage winters put us through warming periods when it will go from 15 degrees to over 40 and start to rain. These tires move through the water on ice road conditions with no problems while passing other cars with all season tires in the ditch or trying to gain traction at stop lights. Noisy ride to be expected with studded tires but safety for my family is more important to me than the noise. I just turn up the radio. You can't go wrong with these.
