I live in Western, NY, and travel for work in WV,OH,PA,VA. These Tires can handle as much snow as my car can push. The Tires Handled perfectly the day after I bought them PA 219 was closed for Trucks, bc of the icy/ heavy snow condition on the Mountains. Most the roads that night I traveled weren't plowed or pre-treated (i.e) Sand, Salt,Brine). There was parts of the road that had up to 18+ it drifted. The tires are very affective in wet, mudding, ice, light/deep snow and ice. I would keep these tires on all year round on my AWD. I've had them for just about a year now, and they still handle like the day I bought them.
