I've had these tires for two winters and I'm pleased with their performance in snow and ice very much. They perform good in the wet and have excellent resistance to hydroplaning. The tires are durable. Would buy them again!

Wet Performance
I've had these tires for two winters and I'm pleased with their performance in snow and ice very much. They perform good in the wet and have excellent resistance to hydroplaning. The tires are durable. Would buy them again!
