Purchased a set for my GT since the stock dunlops are a piece of crap during winter.
All I can say is WOW. We have been hit with a lot of snow since last month and all I can say is that I have TOTAL CONFIDENCE in these tires and made my driving a heck of a lot easier.

Dry Traction is good. Noise level is waay quiet compared to the stock dunlops which when traveling at high speeds sound like you are being chased by an ambulance.
Wet Traction is very good.
Freezing rain/ice traction is superb. My tires are not studded (which would help traction during these conditions) but it performed waay better than I expected.

Light snow traction is outstanding.
Deep snow traction is outstanding as well. I was very lazy on shoveling my driveway so it left a very deep chunk of snow which I had no problem getting in and out of. My other car has the continental dws which got stuck entering our driveway :)

Overall, I am very happy with these tires. Save your money and buy these instead of the blizzaks!
