I could not believe the handling in the snow & ice with these tires. I have been able to maintain pretty good control while driving the local roads which were not plowed real well. Also, taking it slowly, the tires performed rather well on ice covered roads. Stopping in the snow was not an issue either so far. They seem to grip as I am cornering as well. I am not use to having such a tire and would recommend getting these tires. By the way, they are T rated but was able to put them on my Mazda MPV too, go to their website to check if it can be an alternative to use.
