Two years ago I thought Michigan was going to have a terrible winter so I bought these...we never had a terrible winter but they've been awesome in the light snow and slush on my 07 Saturn ION.  It is time for replacement as I have 20k on these and I'm a spirited driver.  Since I got a really good deal on these I am okay with 20k
What is bad?
Wet traction is iffy, along with hydroplaning resistance.  Hard riding.  Bumps cause the tire to Bounce which is the opposite of what you want in a tire if you are concerned about control.

I would buy them again if I had to or found another great deal.  Would not purchase at retail price.  FYI - I run 205/55R16's
