These are great all around Winter tires. They last 4 winters and even nearly at the wear bars I was surprised at how well they performed in deep snow. Obviously the STI AWD helps but I still had a lot of confidence going to the mountains for a day of snowboarding in any conditions with these tires. I have yet to have a car or truck out accelerate me from a stop in the snow (any depth) with these tires on my STI. Stopping and cornering is good in the snow but could be a bit better but not a reason to not consider these tires.
I bought these because they had good dry performance and I was very happy with them in the dry and wet conditions we often get between snow falls.
