I've had these tires for two winters and I'm satisfied very much! It seems they perform like studded tires but they are much more quiet. The tires are durable. After two seasons the tread is still about 85%! I drive 20 miles to work every day and feel safe with these tires. Would buy them again for certain.

I bought this set of a tire for my '18 Ford Fiesta ST and I should say I'm pleased very much! They've never let me down in slow and slush, their performance is superb! And 40K tread wear warranty is amazing! I have 12K miles on them and there is no any sign of wear. These tires are for that areas where there is snow everywhere. Highly recommended!

Have them on my 2016 Jeep Patriot awd and what an awesome combination. I live in Newfoundland Canada where it can snow at least 8 months out of the year and so far this season we have had lots of snow and the tires have performed great, especially on packed snow and ice for which they were designed for.

I daily a 2013 mustang GT in New England winters and have Michelin X-ice3 245/45R19's and for anyone who say's a mustang cannot drive in the snow is hilariously ignorant, I have never been stuck even in 6 inches of snow, for years now. These tires are amazing!

I got to say it's worth every penny I spent for xice hands down. I was planning on buying a all wheel drive but these winter tires on a front wheel drive makes it feel like a all wheel drive and out performs a lot of all wheel drive with no winter tires on. I guess all wheel drive doesn't matter as much as what kind of tire you put on your car.

I've had these tires for two winters and I'm satisfied very much! It seems they perform like studded tires but they are much more quiet. The tires are durable. After two seasons the tread is still about 85%! I drive 20 miles to work every day and feel safe with these tires. Would buy them again for certain.

I bought this set of a tire for my '18 Ford Fiesta ST and I should say I'm pleased very much! They've never let me down in slow and slush, their performance is superb! And 40K tread wear warranty is amazing! I have 12K miles on them and there is no any sign of wear. These tires are for that areas where there is snow everywhere. Highly recommended!

Have them on my 2016 Jeep Patriot awd and what an awesome combination. I live in Newfoundland Canada where it can snow at least 8 months out of the year and so far this season we have had lots of snow and the tires have performed great, especially on packed snow and ice for which they were designed for.

They do handle and perform well as far as traction, responsiveness to steering input, and braking goes.

I daily a 2013 mustang GT in New England winters and have Michelin X-ice3 245/45R19's and for anyone who say's a mustang cannot drive in the snow is hilariously ignorant, I have never been stuck even in 6 inches of snow, for years now. These tires are amazing!

I got to say it's worth every penny I spent for xice hands down. I was planning on buying a all wheel drive but these winter tires on a front wheel drive makes it feel like a all wheel drive and out performs a lot of all wheel drive with no winter tires on. I guess all wheel drive doesn't matter as much as what kind of tire you put on your car.
