Since Pontiac/GM/Chev CUV's have random tire sizes I went off the board with an AT tire instead of the traditional AS touring. These performed well in heavy rain and on dry pavement. In the packed snow, they cut well and I never got stuck once. As for Ice, they do slip and aren't made for it at all hence being an AT tire. I rotated them every 30000 km but I noticed from day 1 how noisy they were - like a high pitched howl on the highway. Didn't notice any comfort issues but wouldn't say they were better then an AS tire. Treadwear has been great but I never criss cross either. As an AT tire, they handled OK, but not great - cornering felt more sluggish than when I had the AS tires on. Good bang for buck tire, as long as you rotate them.
