My car was better with these tires in last months 8 inches of snow than my GMC 2500 HD 4x4 with all seasons. I led a snow plow through a neighborhood and never activated the ESP or ABS in normal driving. I was only able to get the front wheels to break traction one time with heavy acceleration from a start. I have no doubt that I will be able to commute without any concern for traction and safety this season. I would highly recomend these tires for anyone living in an area with frequent snow.
