I live in Philadelphia where we get the full affect of all four seasons. I use these tires from early November till late February depending on the weather. I had these tires on during the blizzard of 2011. Where we got the most snow ever recorded! Over 3 feet. Needless to say I'm extremely happy with the performance of these tires. I also had these tires on during Hurricane Sandy. I was driving through water for a solid month with these tires from 3 feet deep in some areas i was driving through, it handled great. Never hydroplaned or flattened out. I've taken these tires to places i should've never gone, places where i could've been stuck in the snow for days and i returned. That says a whole lot. On dry land they're incredibly quiet, although i gave the cornering rating a 5 it really isn't so bad. The only problem is if your cornering and hit a bump in the road the soft tread waves the truck a little bit. It will regain traction but it does slightly wave to the side. If changing lanes at a higher speed and hit a bump it will slightly wave then regain traction. If you take it easy and drive normal i guarantee you'll love these tires. The rest of the year I use the BF Goodrich T/A KO black sidewall tires. Those are great also.
