This is an excellent tire for the snow belt. It runs quiet on dry roads. Handles slushy snow well and motors through the dry stuff with ease. Icy roads don't present a problem and tread wear seem to be about average. Decent tire for the money.
These are an excellent choice for SUV's. They are quiet for snow tires, hold the road well in dry or wet and are just awesome in snow. Having had Nokian on my last Escape these are superior in every way.
