This is the second set of winter tires that I've owned. The first were Yokohama tires that were really quite good. When I bought another vehicle, I decided to go with these because they were the #1 rated tire on in their category on Tire Rack, had plenty of positive reviews. They are really great on snow, wet and dry pavement, the only complaint I have is they seem to be worse on ice then the previous winter tires. We had more ice than usual on the roads this winter, otherwise it wouldn't be that much of an issue to me. If you get a lot of snow, these an excellent tire. If you get a lot of ice, you probably want to pick something else. I considered about a half dozen different tires when I was shopping, and these were a really good bang for the buck.
