Have had these tires on a couple trips to the mountains, mostly icy conditions. Straight line stability is great, the rear end will not break out under hard braking on an icy surface, which keeps you out of the ditches. Went with a slightly wider (1/2 inch) tire profile for more surface area contact under icy conditions, as opposed to narrower to cut through snow. Lateral stability is fine if driving to the conditions in corners. No appreciable added noise and a smooth, almost insulated ride quality.

Had these tires 2 winters, threadware is excellent But they are noisy, because of the big threads I guess. They are excellent in rainy conditions. Average in snow and totally horrible in icy conditions. I had high hopes for these, but I’m left disappointed. Maybe the narrower sizes work better, but the 255 50 19 I had on my ML were not suitable for my winter driving. Definitely switching to something else next winter.

Absolutely great linear traction through snow and slush, these tires got me up with no problems through Big Cottonwood Canyon Rd in UT at night through a nasty winter storm and the road was in terrible condition and not plowed and my car is FWD. They also feel pretty quiet and comfortable for snow tires on dry roads. Their main drawback is that lateral traction could be improved on both snow and ice

I drove over hour each way on 3 different highways 7 days a week for 7 months and I didn't even k ow it was winter. No stress at all. Conditions didn't matter to these tires. Hit slush on side of highway and it let go instantly. No chance if being pulled in Great traction on snow. Slud about 3' once on ice . Live these tires. Canadian central Alberta winter 7 days a week.

5 Ontario winters on these tires and I really have no complaints. I feel this tire has served me well with the exception of being a bit noisy on dry roads. My driving is mostly highway and country roads with the occasional venture into larger cities and the tires have always performed above my expectations. I just had a look at the treads and feel I will easily get another season out of them, possibly 2. I drive a Ram 1500 sport and these will be my tire of choice when I need to replace.
