If you live in a place where it rains regularly, DO NOT buy these tires. It's more like surfing and less like driving. I have car that is built to have awesome handling, and yet in the rain, I feel like I'm about to hydroplane off the roadway at any speed. They're the very reason why my Scion TC spun out on the highway. If they're this terrible in the wet, I shudder to think of their performance in the snow. However, with that said, they're perfectly fine, if not above average in the dry. If you're looking for a performance tire, then look elsewhere. If you're looking for a cheap tire to get you from A to B and you don't really car about anything else, then these are for you.
