Bought these tire last year and was awesome. Bought them again this year and they are completely different tires, seems like the rubber material has been changed to a harder more rigid material. Give it a 1-2 rating where last year was 4-5 on snow, disappointed. The cumulative average rating is skewed too high, should be 3.5 to 3.8 not 4.6.

these tires are the correct size and load range, but they make the van unstable at freeway speeds. It drove great until I installed these tires. Van's suspension checked out good and it was aligned, but the problem persists. These tires on the rear makes the rear sway, I will have to take them off and put the all seasons back on. That was a waste. i did drive 500 miles, haven't crashed yet, but its sketchy.

The are the worst snow tires I’ve ever had. I should have just left my summer tires on. They perform well in most conditions EXCEPT for snow! They were bald in 20,000 miles, so much noise you can barely hear the radio. I did not have them studded. Handling was good, wet traction is impressive. Not at all recommended for snow.

These tires were just taken off my car after one brutal winter. It handled amazing and would not trade these tires for any other brand. They perform so much better than my Continentals and Michelin's I used to have on my two other cars with AWD.

So far, so good for my Nexen Winguard Spike (no spikes installed). It's been a relatively heavy snow year in Alberta this year and these tires have performed well in almost all conditions. The only time they seem to falter a little is when the snow has been around for a while and taken on almost a sandy character after being pushed around by plows and piled into snow banks. Not sure anything really performs well in those conditions. I've been impressed with braking and handling - especially on packed snow. I have the same tires on a heavier vehicle (Kia Sorento) and the extra weight seems to make the difference in terms of really superior grip.
