I believe that each tire performes differently on different vehicles. On our minivan this tire is absolute awesome. There is no comparison between these and the stock firestones it came with. We had zero snow traction with the old tires. With these tires the snow and ice traction is better than any tire I ever had. We just had a ice storm in lacrosse Wisconsin last night and the van outperformed my 4 wheel drive truck in 4 wheel drive. Highway driving is smooth and quiet. Wet traction is great no hydrplaning at all. No problems at all with braking even in wet conditions. I have tried many tires on differnt vehicles and know that each one performes differnt on differnt types of vehicles. I highly recommend this tire if you have a mini van. Absoluty the best tire I've owned period.
