Comments Awesome tires. Too early to have an opinion on some of these topics. Much better comfort, noise reduction and handling than previous tires.

Comments I drove through two blizzards so far. Roads had ice and snow. Car stayed steady and stable throughout the drive without stopping, sliding, or swerving. Tires have good grip.

Comments I have not had a chance to drive it in snowy or icy conditions so I can't speak to that. I've only had them for a couple of months and so far I've been very very happy with them. They're quiet. They do really well in rainy conditions. They've been repaving the street near me and they had taken it down to dirt and left it that way for a few days. During that time it rained, so it got pretty muddy and slick. I had no problems driving through it. I'm really glad I bought them. Would absolutely buy them again.
