I bought these tires to replace my all season tires because living in Ohio the weather is strange it will be warm one day then snow and freeze the next day. One day my whole parking lot at apartment complex was covered in ice and my Mustang couldn't even leave the driveway, so I said it's time to try out some winter tires. Since I've bought these it hasn't even snowed once and I'm really anxious to try them out on the ice and snow. I have tested out the dry and wet traction though and you can not tell that they are made for winter only they feel like an all season tire. My car rides smooth I do not hear the tires and they respond at an all season tire rate. So I would definately recommend these tires. From the looks of them on your car you can tell that they are winter tires from the tread pattern.
