I am in my first winter season so I cannot comment on long term wear, but traction for braking and acceleration are fantastic, especially in snow. I am pleasantly surprised by how quiet and comfortable they are compared to other winter tires I've tried. As expected, cornering and overall driver feedback is not as good compared to my Sport All-Season Bf-Goodrich tires. Not good for performance driving, but that's to be expected for a winter tire, especially at this price. Good value.
These tires are amazing!!!
I researched about a dozen tires (honestly) in four different places. Having owned a set of toyos in the past, I decided to give them another try since their price was the best.
When I used to approach a puddle on the highway, I would always hydroplane through it. Now I don't even notice the puddle as these tires allow me to drive through it no problem & with easy control of the steering wheel.
I haven't had the opportunity to use them in winter, since snow tires are mandatory where I live, but I do highly recommend them.
