I've used these through 1 winter so far. These are excellent snow tires for the price. Dry performance is as average as you can get for a winter tire, wet performance is very good. No hyrdoplaning in heavy rains. The snow performance is excellent. Excellent grip in the snow. Excellent stopping in the snow and excellent handling/cornering in the snow. The noise levels are very very low for a winter tire. I would definitely by another set of these as they perform very well for the price.

I just had these installed and i figured i would give a preliminary review before I get to use them in snow. I've only put about 400kms and haven't had a chance to use them in the snow yet. However I will say that the over all dry performance is average for a snow tire. The tread depth is very deep, much more then any other snow tire i've ever purchased. I've driven them in some heavy rainfall and I will say they are very good in the rain. Absolutely no hydroplaning at all and no slippage. Comfort wise they're not as soft as the oem Michelin Lattitudes but I'm not expecting them to be. Handling is average at best. Turns and highway ramps at high speeds can be scary. there is significant sidewall roll. I rate the noise pretty high as I didn't notice a significant increase in tire noise but that could be because the Grand Cherokee does an amazing job at keeping road noise away from the cabin.
