I purchased those tires back on 11/22/2010. after 3 months we had a huge blizzard in MD/VA/DC. Snow was 3 feet high by 6pm. My job is in DC and roads not been cleaned i drove from DC to MD and then to VA. I remembered that the snow was hitting the bottom of my car and tires were half covered driving that Saturday evening. trying to avoid traffic i chose to go through the city rather then the highway. No problem!! I reached i-495 in a record time taking consideration of the heavy snow. I drove from GW parkway and when i reached I-495 where the bridge connects MD and VA traffic was ridiculous due to cars stopped on the side of the bridge cause of the icy conditions. to my surprise i drove through that traffic snow and icy roads with no problem. been a very spirited driver i pushed those tires to the max. i speed up to 65 miles an hour on those conditions weaving through traffic. i also made a video of my driving that night just to show my friends the performance of those tires that night. Long story short, i recommend those tires not only for icy winter and heavy conditions but also for dry summer days.
