I had these tires on 2 cars (06 and 02 Impala). The traction was excellent all around, snow, rain and dry. Cornering was a little soft as they are a softer rubber. I did have the outsides wear faster than the center on the 06 (camber issue when people are in car). Put about 44k on tires (06 Impla) so I cannot complain, ever with outside wear. I only got about 25k on the 02 Impala as the car burned up. It did take a while for the front tires to pop when the front was engulfed in flames. I will be putting them back on the 06 Impala soon as I cannot stand the Bridgestone Grid 019 on there now. Only reason I put Bridgestone on car was I had to replace them before vacation due to blowout and only found 1 place open late to install tires.
