Tire Pros

Best bang for the buck. Great traction.

Tire Cons

Soft rubber compound but good wear for winter tires.

My wife would always be scared to slide around when it snowed. This was the first winter she actually felt comfortable driving. Peace of mind is definitely worth it. Will buy again.

Tire Pros

Great traction in deep snow and slush. As good as any dedicated winter tire I've used. Showing no wear after the first winter.

Tire Cons

Nowhere near the ice performance of the Bridgestone Blizzaks we have on the other car.

These are on my wife's 2011 Buick Regal Turbo. The W speed rated 19" stock tires weren't going to do for winter, so we bought these in a 17" with some painted black alloy wheels. We've been happy with them, and would repurchase again in the future.

Tire Pros

Gives me peace of mind when I drive in snow/slushy conditions.

Price is on the higher side.

These are great tires. I will recommend them for any one who cares about winter driving conditions.

Tire Pros

Great in the snow and ice.

Tire Cons

We had them studded so road noise.

Bought these tires for the back road that can get very icy in the winter. Of course this winter has been more wet than icy. The tires work great the few days that were icy you would never notice. We did have them studded!
