I purchased these tires for something that will work as a Good all season tire. They have worked awesome all winter (a Calgary winter that is). Very impressed with the handling in the snow, never spun out on any hill that was iced up. Always had traction starting at lights and stop signs. It did hydroplane in 4 deep slush at 50mph but that can be expected. Over all great all around tire for all 4 seasons.
I did find them a little spongy on corners but that could have been due to my car's required air pressure.
