For 2 months I research online for a good winter tire and all brands seems to do the job. I have 2 kids under 5 years of age so I was very concern for them and wanted to find a tire that would do the job during the snow season. I came across these winterforce. After seeing them in person at sears I decided to go with the purchase. A week later we got hammered with a snow storm and I was able to put them to the test. THEY WORK! PERIOD!!! I like their grip during light or heavy snow, and ice. I no longer have to go to work fearing that my wife will end up doing another 360 degree on the road like she did prior with our other tires(goodyear integrety). I WILL BUY these winterforce tires AGAIN!!!!!!!!
