I bought these for my wife as I wanted her to be absolutely safe driving my kids around in the winter/snow and WOW do these tires ever live up to that expectation. I've had a few different sets of snow tires in my lifetime and these are by far THE BEST I've ever had. As men often do, I have tried several times to break traction in some pretty hairy wintery/snowy conditions and you have to seriously work hard to do that.
I'm actually jealous because I have Dunlop Winter Sport 3Ds on my vehicle and that don't even come close to performing as well as these Blizzaks do in the snow and ice. I can't emphasize enough how well these tires do with both acceleration and deceleration/braking. These tires defy physics in my opinion. I can't say enough good things about them. Would DEFINITELY buy these again. In fact, these will probably be the only winter tires I will buy going forward.
