While I didn't have any experience with these in snow, I had a lot of experience with them in the wet and they had almost zero traction. While starting from a red light in the rain using very little throttle, the rears would break loose. While cornering in the rain, even at the speed limit, the fronts would wash wide without warning. They were also extremely stiff until after about 10k miles when they finally softened up. However they were very quite and in the dry they did handle fairly well under hard driving and track use but once they broke away, they would snap without warning; it wasn't progressive at all. I would not buy these again as the Kumho Ecsta ASX provide much better all weather traction at a significantly cheaper price. For harder driving, the Dunlop Direzza DZ101 are a much superior tire at a similar price.
