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 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.
