I live on a steep hill and bought these for a Subaru Forester. We had an easy winter, no more than 3 inches, if that. It didn't matter. These tires can lose traction in less than an inch of snow. Every time the traction control kicked in. Going downhill I always used x-mode since the tires were so inept going uphill, I didn't dare rely on them keeping any traction going downhill. These tires were a big let down after all the good reviews, here and in Consumer Reports. Definitely don't buy these tires.

These tires are awesome. I have a long commute in miserable winter weather and I never feel like they're going to give. Totally fantastic.

These tires run very quietly, even compared to normal all weather tires. I have noticed no difference riding them in dry conditions (which is a positive thing) and have not lost traction driving in snow, slush, or black ice. I have not had the opportunity to test them out in rainy conditions, but I do not expect to have any problems. Also, I can not comment on the tread life since it's only been a few months [Had to pick star ratings, used my judgement] 4x4 Jeep Grand Cherokee 2010
