These tires were pretty decent in the first couple of winters, especially in mixed conditions, but after a bit of use, their ice performance has become non-existent and they do quite badly in deeper snow. You know your tires aren't doing well when a crappy FWD car takes off better than your AWD beast on a tiny bit of black ice. Otherwise they are fairly comfortable and have continued to do pretty well in shallower snow and slush, but I wouldn't buy them again, considering how much performance they lose over time.
Fantastic tire, great traction and tread wear at an awesome price. The only downside is that the tires are quite loud both on highway and during cornering. Will definitely be buying again when the time comes.
