These tires give me peace of mind. I like knowing I'm in control of my car when I'm driving in the winter. These don't make you superman in the snow, but they provide a lot more traction and stability as you drive. I never used to be able to get up certain snowed hills with all-season tires. These tires have no problem at all doing it for me. I've driven through horrible snow storms, and they've done me well. Recently as I drove through Ohio in late January 2013, much of 90 was shut down and barricaded due to the storm. I used my GPS and took side roads to get back on at another ramp. I was the only car for MILES. Surprised I wasn't pulled over.
That's the article about it. Cruised on through.
Only thing that gets me is that there is supposedly better technology than this, and I may be willing to take a look at those that claim to have it. I'm just one of those guys that will try to get the marginal best when it comes to safety.
