This is my wife's car. Our performance requirements were good rain/wet and snow/ice performance with average dry performance. Neither of us generally drives this car near it's dry performance capabilities but typically in wet, snow, and ice (we live in the Cascade Mountain foothills). Tread-wear was also a priority. This tire delivered on all our requirements. The lone detraction was it was noticeably rougher riding and louder than the stock Michelin Latitudes but being $100/tire less expensive made that an easy concession.
