I am in Toronto and we are having the worst winter ever for snow. What perfect timing to have purchased these amazingly sticky tires. I cant put my Carrera away for the winter as I love it so much, and traction with these snows is amazing, in all types of conditions, including deep snow and wet snow. I spoke to a very helpful Tire Rack rep prior to purchase and he recommended these vs all season. I was vasillating for weeks on snows/all seasons and am I ever glad I got the snows. I am driving with confidence and less stress for sure.
