My goal was to replace original tires on my little SUV, Pontiac Torrent. I needed All-Season with an emphasis on snow traction as I live in WI. We didn't have a super snowy winter, but had enough to get a good feel for the tires in snow/ice. They performed very well! I had no problems! The ride is great and there is no noise issue. I had these tires recommended to me by a Goodyear person who had them on her vehicle. I was glad I followed her suggestion! We just replaced tires on my husband's light truck and I would have bought these, but they weren't available in the truck's size.
