Before buying I had read lots of glowing reviews, and the price was good, but I'm not thrilled with their performance on snow and ice. Nowhere near as much accelerating and stopping grip as Blizzaks on slippery surfaces. Once moving, they turn and track well. Very quiet tires too, and did not impact fuel economy. If tread wear isn't excessive, I'll consider these for my Outback next time. But for my 2wd car I will replace these with Blizzaks for maximum accelerating grip.

Got these for my AWD Tesla Model 3 due to price point and (limited) reviews. I run Blizzaks in other cars, and while nothing compares to those in terms of snow handling excellence, these tires are a good budget option. Simple tire had them in stock, and great shipping (free and timely).

Great tire, comparable to Blizzak. Improved the experience driving my Scat Pack. If they had a higher speed rating I'd drive on them all year.

Consider the VikingContact 7 from Continental, which is designed with a Nordic tread compound for superb grip on wet roads and flexibility in cold weather.

Built with added biting edged to equip drivers with powerful traction and braking, the VikingContact 7 features a Three Peak Mountain Snowflake symbols thanks to its ability to perform in severe snow conditions.
