I've had these tires for two winter seasons and I'm very pleased with. On the dry pavement they have amazing grip in cold wetaher but once it gets warm they lose some of it. This expected from a winter tire but I'm still amazed that I can drive the car hard and not lose grip. In the wet, that tires perform just as well and I only felt some hydroplaning once. In the snow, the tires are just perfect. The tires just plow through the snow and they give you a sence of confidence like no other. I will definetly buy these tires again.
