Initial Review, 7,000 Miles on Tires

The X-Ice Xi2 gives up very little as far as comfort, noise, dry cornering ability and traction compared to the factory Bridgestones. Where this tire really shines (pun not intended!) is on ice and in lighter to moderate amounts of snow. With the Legacy, I have extreme confidence this will maintain grip in almost all winter conditions. Having just experienced a 12"-16" snowfall storm last week, with these tires (combined with the all wheel drive) I have an immensely capable all weather vehicle. The tires are overall the best combination of traction/comfort/noise (lack thereof)/cornering response of any of the winter tires that I've bought from the Tire Rack. Past purchases include Bridgestone Blizzaks from a few years ago, and Goodyear Eagle Ultra Grip.
