Fantastic winter tire at great value price. Ride and noise is good to very good. Not a summer so a little more road noise on dry pavement but much better than many others. Ride and cornering are amazing being better than the factory standard tire on this vehicle. Snow traction is good in all conditions and really snow plows through deeper conditions. Ice performance is very good and I really think the only major improvement would be the addition of studs )which this tire will accept). Wet and sloppy conditions the performance is very good. I have purchased these tires for two vehicles to date and recommend them to my friends as an affordable option for a great winter tire.
