After 5 Illinois winters and 5 snowy trips to MN in December, these are shot, but they have served their purpose. No accidents, no property damage, and strong piece of mine when driving on them. We are ready to purchase another set of the same, almost time to swap out for the 20's, summer is finally almost here. It's been a VERY long winter, and we've beaten our all-time snowfall record by almost 5 this year. Measurable snowfall 41 days this winter, also a record. I would absolutely recommend these to anyone with an SUV, and one of my friends has them on his CTS-V as well, and has been surprised by snowfall, and it's controllable with these tires as well.
