These replaced a set of Michelin X-Ice on my BMW 5 Series AWD wagon. I purchased anyway as they were on sale for a VG price, notwithstanding having read a # of reviews indicating these were more a performance oriented winter tire, and not great in deep snow. . I have to disagree on the other reviews on snow.. These are awesome in real snow. I have had them on 1 month and 3000 km. Have experienced warm dry roads, ice, slush and 4" of un-plowed snow.
This is one of the quietest snow tires I have ever had on a vehicle. They drive like a high quality all season, but yet perform well on snow and ice. I am quite pleased with my purchase.
I ranked the tire 5/5 in all categories, but in fairness there should have been an option to not rate tread-wear. I only have 3K on tires so cannot reasonably comment on tread-wear. All other items are 5
