These tires are as good or better than Michelins.
I have had other Nokian tires in the past so I know how good they are. The one tires drive very smooth and corner great in wet and dry conditions. I have yet to drive them in the winter and our winters are more rain and slush than real snow lately. But if they are anything like other Nokian tires I have had they will do great in the winter. I highly recommend these tires.
