Live in Northern Alberta. Bought a set of these for the wife's brand new sedan. Tires are great in deep snow, they can throw snow 20 feet away when you step on it. Try to get it stuck and it chews down to pavement in a few revolutions. Ice performance (which there doesn't seem to be a rating for) isn't the best however, with only few straight line sipes the tires perform more like a light truck tire on ice. Cornering and stopping on ice is only marginally better than her European all season tires. Dry performance is pretty good, the tires lack of ice dynamics for a trade off in dry weather I guess. Tire feels very smooth and has worn very well. Road noise is way above average for a winter tire, the tire almost howls like a mud tire at highway speeds (even had the dealer check alignment all green) this doesn't bother me much but it's something to note when considering a winter tire. I feel this tire was designed more of SUV's or midsize trucks then coupes or sedans. Consider this tire if you live in areas that get heavy dumps of snow but regularly have dry pavement.
