So far so good in the rain and dry pavement as no snow yet late Dec 2015 but can't submit review without scoring snow so based on my research I would give it at least a 4. Overall great handling tires even at higher speeds before I realized I had recently changed to snow tires and notched it back a bit!... Acceleration during turns in the rain does kick on the stability control system even with "rain/snow" mode selected but no appreciable rear drift or line change. No visible wear but only 1K miles logged. Much more confident wear, will be better than Michelins. Only other tire I considered at this size was Continental ContiWinterContact TS 830 but it was discontinued? Very happy with my choice of Blizzaks. Thank you Bridgestone.
