I've used these tires for two winter seasons in Northern New England, and absolutely love them. During the winter I drive on steep, curvy, snow-covered, icy, backcountry roads, and I feel like I'm driving a tank (actually a Honda Accord) with these tires. I can't tell you how many cars I've passed heading up steep access roads on my way to a snowy mountain.
I'm heading into my third season with these tires, and they seem to be wearing well. The thread still looks solid, almost brand new on three of the four tires and good on one. They're a bit louder on dry roads than my all-season tires, but that's obviously to be expected. I highly recommend these winter tires.
A great tire... car handles like a true sports car...I have driven many type of cars from drag strip , road racing, and just plain comfort.. This tire is as good as it gets for a relatively small price.
