The tires ride comfortably. The noise is quieter than the oe tires, but still noticeable. The tires handle well in light snow and rain. Deep snow has not been available. Tread wear is not appreciable at this time, I will need to look at tread wear at 20M miles. Good tire, but I will look at the Michelin Defender when I replace tires next time. There was not much available in Michelin in 225/65/17 when I bought these at a reasonable price.
