I bought these tires Sept 2013 and have been very happy with them. I used to buy Vredesteins, but they just got too expensive for me($275 each!) These are wearing well, and I love both the wet and dry traction. Snow traction is OK, better than some others I have had, but I have to say if there is a lot of snow I park it. I love this car, but it is not a snow car. This tire is a great combination. I think the ride comfort is great, but I like a firmer ride where i can feel the road. I would highly reccommend this tire!
