Just got 21 of snow. Wife took these tires for their first drive through hardpack, drifts, slush and unplowed roads. She was able to drive at a reasonable speed and stay on the road where others had spun off.
Not too noisy on dry pavement at highway speeds. Handling is a bit sloppy around corners when temps are above 45F... be prepared for understeer. Have taken a 2-3 mpg hit on fuel economy, but it's a small price to pay for the increased traction and improved handling, compared to the OEM all-seasons these tires replaced.
