Comments I am writing his review as I just purchased these tires for my daughter. I chose these tire tires due to the exceptional performance in the recent snow & ice storm, the quietness and high ride qualities compared to the pole position 970 AS tires that I took off.

Comments I have never used snow tires before but everything I read said my Passat would need them and I'm glad I got them. I feel very confident driving on these tires in all conditions. There actually has been a lot of pure ice on the roads in the two months I have been driving on them. They are very quiet and it has been a pleasure to drive on these. I would definitely buy these again.

Comments My car is 100% better now in the snow. One inch of snow would stop me cold before I got these new tires and now I drove home with 8 inches of snow on the road at 4:00 in the morning before the plow trucks got going.

Comments This tire is living up to it's ratings. I haven't driven on ice or snow yet but I'm confident that won't be a problem.The car handles great and it's a very quiet driving tire. I'll be back for the regular Michelin good weather tires when the winter is over. Service and the people at Town Fair are great.
