I got them as summer tires on my Cutlass 3 years ago, not knowing they are technically all-season. And I was surprised how well they did in snow. Dedicated snow tires would be better, but I was happy with them, especially in the summer and in the rain.

Not if you're getting them for winter only. They look like a good compromise for all season but if you want winter tires, you could do better.

I'm very happy with their winter and summer performance. They're great in rain and snow/ice. I've got them on both cars for what it'* worth. Great tire for the money.

I thought they were mediocre in all conditions.

Cheers,

they are not going to be too good in the snow..period. Just look at the treadlife warranty.

However they will be fine for all the other seasons.

It all depends on how often you drive in the snow and such. if not often, they are fine for you.

Both Travis and myself have firsthand experience with these in the snow and have not been disappointed by any means.
