Almost that time again to put on winter tires, thought might as well give my 2 cents on these tires. They are wonderful in both snow and ice. It is a little loud due to the studs I have on them but that is expected when you stud the tires. I am going on my last season from my trips going back and forth the 401 highway. I had no problems at all in winter with these tires on that highway and that highway isn't always cleaned properly. I am now nexen loyal. Congratulations nexen for making me a loyal customer.
