These tires came on our vehicle when we bought it. We had about 5K on them, when we encountered light snow in our area. The tires handled very poorly. The line in the tire description provides snow traction, is misleading. We were unable to climb the smallest of hills with approx 1 in of snow on the ground. We ended up having to leave the car on the side of the road and walk home (we didnt have snow chains yet). I now have 20K on them, and they are nearly bald, and I am a very easy going driver. I have since purchased snow tires for the season, but will go to someting else when the weather changes.
