Got those 2 months ago, drove 2k miles on them, i highly regret not getting what i use to get (blizzak or hakkapeliitta). Even an x-ice would have done the job better. They kept drifing on ice, got swamped in snow, would not hold the line on highway. Even worst, they have a manufacturing defect (bubble on the side) and pirelli does not want to replace the faulty tire even if it's an issue with how it was made. stay away.

Handles really well in snow and rain. It is a good looking tire and I highly recommend it.

Had these installed before the snow starts, they are great when it comes to reduce noise and handling including wet weather. They are also great for highway users if your driving highway alot with higher speed and great in snow in low speed. The only disadvantage of it is during packed snow, which takes longer to stop if in a higher speed. Since I don't drive any European cars as they are heavier weight which they do better for those tires, it suited enough well for my car since it's AWD.

Just got these on a couple of months ago and had a chance to drive them in dry, wet, and snow. So far their traction in both dry and wet is superb, with low road noise and excellent comfort in sub-zero temperatures. Fresh snow traction in 1-3 in. is also excellent and with the Audi Quattro 4WD system, the car is as capable as any jeep or truck. The tread pattern on the tire is also aesthetically attractive, overall an excellent purchase and would buy again over Blizzaks.
