I just bought these tires and have driven them for less than 100 km so not sure of their handling, at this time, and have not driven them on snow. However, the noise is driving me crazy; but if I crank up the stereo to ear drum splitting, I can take it. (But, not take the music.) I needed new tires in a pinch because during a safety inspection my old tires were judged not that safe. In fact, the car, which is regularly serviced, had nothing else wrong with it. Although I normally buy Michelin the store didn't have them so I settled for the most expensive tires they had, the Dunlap. Never again.
