After about 3 seasons with this tire and approx 15k, while there is a lot of tread left, the tire is very hard now. I find snow and ice traction is very much reduced to that of a good all season tire. The 1st few winters were great, but I dont have as much confidence this winter. I probably wouldn't buy this tire again.

What an awesome snow tire. They were not cheap by any means, but to be able to put something on the car and just drive off and be totally happy off the bat is rare and appreciated! I have no regrets with making this choice. FYI, the day i got them we had snow, and they did ok, just ok, and for a moment i thought i had spent a lot of money for nothing, but a week later we got a foot of snow and it was like night and day - they must have needed a break in period or something. Either way, now i can stop on an incline going downward with little ABS engagement, and turn around and go back up the incline with minimal effort from the AWD. Dont look at anything else, ---- it up and get these tires! :-)
