This tire is GREAT on dry roads, wet roads, heavy downpours. Absolutely worthless in ANY kind of snowy conditions. The sipes are too small and too close together, leaving no space for snow to get moved out of the way. Therefore, absolutely HORRIBLE in snow. These ARE NOT all-season tires! I would not ever recommend these to a friend nor relative. We have a brand new asphalt driveway, and we'd gotten stuck in as little as 3 of snow IN THE DRIVEWAY. Driving is scary like being on bald tires. We live in the Rochester, NY area. Going Michelin or Continental next round!
