Love these tires. Not too noisy. They are touchy-responsive with a stiff sidewall. Resist to slipping on the road, ultra grippy for people who like to drive swiftly. Handling in fresh snow (FWD) is great, I only had problems when the snow was too deep for my vehicle.
Traction is unsatisfactory in compacted snow or ice, but better than a summer tire. I recommend having studded tires.
My MPG average lowered to 26.9(Sport A/S 3) from 27.9 (OEM, which I deem acceptable.
