I can't complain at all with these tires. They stop when i want them to wherther dry, wet, snow. actually most times in the snow they stop good enough to where my ABS doesn't even kick in so i'm pretty impressed with that. Road Noise? ya theres a little but nothing thats enough to bother me.
i haven't had them long enough to notice the treadware but i know that after a full year they still have some of that tire paint on them and still look brand spankin new.
would recomend to anyone looking who wants a good all season that will actually work in snow and icy conditions.
