I am going to assume that you have not had the chance to test them in snow. They look good

$78 a tire! Keep me informed on if you like them. I REALLY don't like paying for my $200+ michlens (SP?). I love that tread pattern!

I've only put 7 mles on them so far. I'll be taking them on a 125 mile trip tomorrow so I'll report then, Since there made by Michelin, they should be good.
