Great Tire in the snow. Grid is very good and they handle well in slippery conditions. Made it up several steep icy hills while others are just spinning their tires.
I drive with care and caution in snow (not slow but, not a lead foot either) and they are on an AWD Subaru Forester so that may effect my view.
I have the Hankook iPike on a Toyota Matrix (FWD) and they don't compare, a lot of slipping when I hit the gas...Overall the W300 is a much better tire.
