I'm reading these comments about surfing and that the tires are for dry weather. I literally just went uphill in slush / rain / powder snow, along with 45-50mph driving. This was also on 50 - 75 degree hills. I had absolutely no problems, immense control, and never once slid or lost traction. I'm wondering if the individuals noting the issues are experienced bad weather drivers. I can't believe what I'm reading to be honest. however It could also be due to the fact of what car is on top of these tires. I have these on a 2016 HR-V AWD. This may change things drastically. But Yeah highly recommend for "AWD"
