I bought this tire for my Toyota Sienna strictly for the low level of road noise. So far this is the quitest tire I've tried. Ride comfort (soaking up the bumps) is quite good. The handling is great and there is no sign of unusual wear after 6K. Tires always get more noisy as the rubber wears down and it will be interesting to see how quickly this happens.
Sorry I did not test them much in snow. What little snow driving I did suggests that they are about average for all season tires. True snow tires are much better.
