I don't understand why some post negative reviews because I find these to be a good all around tire. Driven to Florida and back from Toronto and found these tires to be quiet and good at handling. Driving through the Virginia mountains with all it's S curves was fun and I had no problem and felt confident taking them in curves at 140 km/h and at times even higher speeds. In snow and icy conditions, I always am careful and adjust my speed accordingly so again no problems. PS. I gave these tires perhaps an unfair low snow rating because comparing them to my Winter Bridgestone Blizzaks, they are not as good.
