I've tried the new Yokohama IG51v on my '15 Sorento SUV and they did not perform as well as the Xi3 on my rear wheel drive car in the same parking lot. The SUV actually got stuck multiple times. I also have NordFrost 5 on my '02 Corolla, older Yokohama snow on my '96 Integra, and Nexen on my '97 Maxima. General Altimax on my '12 Rogue (RIP). The Xi3 have been the best so far in ALL conditions. Dry handling was very surprising to me as you can see I have several other tires. I had better traction going uphill than my SUV on the same hills too. I used to drive 30,000 km a year 6+ years so I have tons of experience on snow tires alone.
