This is the first set of snow tires i've purchased, after trying to simply get by with all season tires in a region where it is quite snowy in the winter. The tires perform extremely well in the snow, and I've driven on snow covered highways, and up and down pretty steep hills. I would definitely buy the tires again, for a winter scenario. I've noticed a bit more "wander" with the tires, and they are noisy but the agressive tread is going to lead to increased noise. But overall, the snow traction is very very good. In fact, I think i have better traction with my Altimax-Arctic equipped FWD minivan now than my 4WD F150 (with very good tires) in the snow.
