These tires are excellent for our Saskatchewan winter. I just put these on this October and we have had freezing rain, heavy snowfall and slush, then rain, freezing again. I couldn't be happier with my choice. There is road noise when on dry road. I find my vehicle loud with my other set of tires though. I can't really comment on treadwear but plan on switching to my other tires in spring as I would not want to use these in summer months anyway.
