Overall disappointed in the X-Ice Xi3. I live in Vancouver, and in the cold / wet these are border line dangerous. Wet cornering and braking is aweful. Even down to freezing on wet roads the High Performance Summer tires WAY out perform these tires. They're soft sidewalls, so comfortable, but also marshmellowy in cornering. Much noisier than the summer tires, but to be expected. In snow they were good, and never felt unsafe even on very snowy highways to Whistler and Kelowna. These should be rebranded "Snow Tires" and not "Winter Tires".

Not sure why some folks don't like these. Maybe it's my vehicle? I have two vehicles in family - Hakkepellita's on one (wifes Highlander) and this on mine. All I can say, when it's icy and snowy out, I feel much safer in my outback then I do in the Highlander (and Hakki's are the #1 rated tire???). My Outback stops much quicker on ice, gets going much faster on ice, and though I've tried I can't lose control when corning on ice even when trying (my car just rights itself and the tires will find grip on all but the most slickest of surfaces). Like I said, maybe it's the car? But when I need another set of winters, I'll be getting these (I was running the Nitto winters before this, this is my second set of winters now - and these easily beat the Nitto's).

A tire that performs very well in every condition except in heavy snow fall, those of you from Alberta/Quebec or other snowy regions are better off with a Blizzack or another comparable tire.

Fantastic tires with great handling and stopping factors to them. Very relaxed when driving the family through the snow to the ski chalet.
