After a full winter on these tires, I am amazed at their abilities in snow and sloppy conditions. Handling was consistent and predictable. Wear has been excellent. Road noise on bare pavement has been non-existent and braking also consistent and predictable. I am amazed at how much better these handle than the older Blizzak models I have tried. Flat cornering and no tire squeal. Would definitely buy these again. They look great on the alloy wheels they came paired with too.

Wow! My experience with this tire has so far been amazing through several early winter snow storms. Snow traction is fantastic and slushy/wet is good too. I have had WS60's on a previous vehicle and although an excellent snow tire, I found them noisy in the dry, and squirmy in the corners. Not these. Very little road noise and cornering and handling are excellent. The DM-V1's seem to have a stiffer sidewall but ride comfort is still good. I also have to praise TireRack.com for their amazing service. These tires arrived at my door in Southern Ontario in only 4 days and even with shipping and duty, were priced competitively and perhaps even a little better than local shops. I like to shop local, but a supply issue in Canada meant I just could not find a set of DM-V1's anywhere. Was told I could put my name on a waiting list and maybe I would get a set in 3 weeks to 3 months! So thanks TireRack for saving my winter driving season this year.
