These tires are great in the snow. The ABS rarely activated under normal braking, and there was sufficient traction to keep up with 4x4 trucks from a stop. I took the Jetta for a 2 hour drive in 9" of snow and honestly had no problems starting or stopping. My wife even noticed a difference and said she never wanted all-season tires for winter again. I had the choice between my 4x4 Tahoe and the Jetta with these tires, and I picked the Jetta for snow every time.

The tires are slightly squirmy compared to the O.E. tires but that is to be expected from a winter tire. Noise was similar to the O.E. tire.
