Excellent winter tire for the money. Transformed my rear wheel drive Volvo wagon into a snow machine. I have much more confidence driving in the winter than with any all season tire. We see a wide variation of winter weather in Kentucky so its nice to feel prepared for anything. These tires definitely aren't as responsive as a summer or all season tire, but that is to be expected and it isn't a safety issue as long as the rest of your suspension is in order.
