I have driven my SW606 tires for 4 winters, and found them great until this past winter, when I noticed they seemed to lack traction on my extremely icy driveway...still great in most conditions though. Since the rubber seemed to be hardening, but the treads were still at 9/32nds, I left them on my vehicle and drove them all summer long. With over 40,000kms on them, the tread depth is still 7/32nds, so I will use them again next summer. I can't really complain at all about these tires.

Thought I’d cheap out and try getting these for my A5 for its first Canadian winter and I was immediately impressed. They are quieter than my summer performance tires and are super comfortable to ride on when there’s no snow. Obviously they don’t handle anywhere as sporty however for daily commuting and relaxed driving they sure do the job.

I live in Ontario Canada and put these new on my AWD Subaru last year and have handled heavy snow, freezing rain, extreme cold snaps and various other messy weather in between and have really held up. I didn't expect much, given the price point, but have been very pleasantly surprised by the handling, treadware and overall performance. Definitely recommended for those that want a "bang for the buck" tire.

Excellent winter tire for the money, one of the quietest winter tires I have used on my car. Great performance in heavy rain and colder conditions. As a side note, these tires also hold up reasonably well on the track, and wear very nicely. Oversteer/understeer is very predictable and easy to correct. Will be buying again!
