I almost want to give 1/5 under wet and snow, but I thought I give this the benefit of the doubt till I get more time on snow. On dry roads, they are quite impressive as they feel more like an all season tire. In snow and slush however, they don't perform a ton better than all seasons. In particular during turn in, my car would severely understeer, and during braking, it tends to slip quite a bit. Being fair however, I have to remind myself that this is a performance winter tire, which may explain some of the qualities I've mentioned earlier. My recommendation is don't buy this tire if you get a lot of snow. Where I am in the city, the roads tend to get cleared pretty fast, so I am sort of ok trading performance for a lack of snow handling.

Very good in the wet. Good on the highway , comfortable and quiet. The turn in for snow tires is impressive.

Totally love these tires. They are great on wet and snowy condition. I am a fan of kuhmo tires. For those who have never bought them should give it a shot.
