Make that three.

Like I said, they won't be as good as an exclusive snow tire, but they are by no means bad in snow. I've driven pretty damn quick on snow covered/packed roads and I held the road pretty well.

#4 here. While others couldnt get up an offramp last year lat year because of ice/snow and these helped pull me right up with no issues.This will be my 4th winter on them. I love them.

I've been looking at these tires for a good month now. From the hundreds of reviews I've read on the net, they were almost all positive. Only negatives I got were from VW owners, which I've heard can go through tires in 15k mi easily.

#5 here! LOL. I've had these tires since like July '04 IIRC. Obviously for just a snow tire you could do much better, but they do pretty well in everything for an all season tire. Straightline traction is pretty good, in rain they are pretty good, and in snow they aren't bad either. I don't recall ever getting stuck in the snow on them.

However, FWIW, mine are basically bald now and I won't be replacing them with the same thing.
