Don't let the reviews scare you i drove through a heavy ICE storm, through snow, and drive a minivan like it is a supra.. I have yet to slide, lose control, or have any unpredictable movements, the van is not really designed to be a sports car, so when pushed it will squeal i bit into turns, the dry traction is good, if not great. The wet traction, also Great.. Snow traction is amazing, better then the Michelin's in which they replaced.. Handling, well its a mini-van not really designed for cornering.. Noise, yeah, they are loud, not obnoxious, but they are loud.. Treadwear, with rotation and proper inflation i am at 50K miles on mine, and have yet to need to replace them, i would bet another 15K miles left on them..
