The tires provide comfort and safety, in all conditions - although there was not much typical winter driving this year, because of the climate we have. However, driving on the alpine serpentines near Innsbruck was a lot of fun, and driving thousands of kilometers on Polish and European highways on quiet and well-grip tires is simply comfort. Recommendable premium tires, with a powerful engine, it is worth investing in tires.

Comments
They are better than good. On wet slush asphalt, they start to catch traction after just a few minutes of driving, the car accelerates (instead of skidding) with almost full throttle after the first or two seconds of starting. On a dry surface with frozen dirt they are very stable. As for the snow - they behave predictably and it is safe.  Certainly the best winter tires I have had so far, better than the Pilot Alpin 4 in my opinion.
