I've driven in snow covered Ottawa for nearly 5 years - never used winter tires. First substantial snowfall of Nov 2016 and drove the Odyssey through my unclear driveway, unplowed road and no slippage whatsover. This tire is more than great. The real test for me was on Stop signs. Once I was at a complete stop, the van went forward with no slippage whatsover. Drove through my usual route and I could easily identify the tight turns where the van would dance and slide, they didn't this time - and I even drove at a higher speed on these turns. The tires do feel 'noisier' on a sunny day in a dry pavement. But I would take this tire anytime for the convenience of running only one set of tires the whole year round. My van has the Celsius CUV, my other car has the Celsius. I don't regret the purchase and highly recommend it to other people who have limited budget, storage space and want the convenience of a variable conditions tire.
