Drove in my second snow storm first one was with Nexen all season tires that the dealer put on and all I can say is I almost crashed at least 5 times. Abs constantly kicking on and sliding all over the place. Second snow storm with the Michelins on. Well phrases like glued to the road and amazing came to mind. These tires are the most amazing snow tires I have ever driven. They make my Tiguan into a snow beast! This car is used by my son and daughter primarily and i now feel 100%better about them being out with snow and ice. Total confidence and a very worthwhile investment! Thanks to tire rack for making it easy and fast shipping!
