I bought these a few years ago as a second set of winter only tires. My Maxima SE was essentially not drivable in the winter with the stock tires (245/45/18). I would get stuck in 2 or 3 inches of snow. I bought the smaller wheels (17) and tires that are essentially what is on the SL. Wow is all I can say. I live out a bit and our road is rarely plowed, and living on the West coast of Michigan we get a ton of Lake driven snow and these tires make my Maxima virtually a snowmobile. I can go through snow that is deep enough that I push snow away when I open the doors. I have never got stuck once I got these tires. I have had these as a second set of tires for 4 years, and they still work amazing. Dated a girl with a AWD Vibe that thought I was showing off (maybe I was! ) in the deep snow. She was very concerned that we would get stuck during a snow storm. I told her not to worry. We did get stuck with her car later. I ended up buying these tires for her car, and my teenagers eclipse. I would say buy these tires if you have the need to get snow tire for a great price.
