Best winter tires I've ever used. They are very quiet, responsive and smooth on dry and wet roads. In deep snow and ice the tires perform amazingly. I have two sets of them on two different cars and I'm very happy with their performance on both of them. I highly recommend!

I have had these tires for two winters. So far so good. Running these on my 2005 Subaru Legacy GT. They perform well in both dry and wet conditions up to 60*F (I haven't driven these in higher temps). They do great job in snow and ice as well. I took them out in 3-7" fresh snowfall and they ran great. They seem to grip really well on rough ice from run off water freeze over as well. Definitely recommend!

They are the most excellent winter tires I ever had. The tires grip very well in different conditions, don't make a lot of noise and are smooth on highway. I would highly recommend these tires to anyone looking for snow tires that don't want to hear the typical loud tread of snow tires.
