Great tire for the money, and for overall use. Good longevity, great off-road/snow/ice traction. I have studded tires so keep that in mind on the ice rating, no idea how they do without them. Tires tend to float a bit when cornering or maneuvering on any road condition. Will take you up a sheer cliff of snow and never slip. They tend to dig a bit in deeper snow, but airing them down helps them to stay on top a little bit better. General noise is moderate, and considering the tread pattern is actually quite good. Absorb bumps really well compared to the low-profile 20's I run in the summer. Great Tire, I would absolutely buy again.
