Bought with expectations of a harsh East Coast winter, but only had to use them for two snow days this past winter. The were very stable and responsive during the dry cold spells on the highway at high speeds. Hope to see some more snow next winter to give them a better trial.

These tires made it possible for me to drive my car in the winter. Prior to buying them, I took my life into my hands every time I drove in icy or snowy weather. Great rain traction too! The ride is a little stiffer and heavier, but worth it for the peace of mind.

Surefooted in snow and slush, rain as well. Tires seem to 'hunt' a little in dry conditions - probably due to the aggressive tread. So far, I am very satisfied with my purchase.

We get a lot of snow in the Buffalo area, mostly lake effect. But I also spend a lot of time in Vermont, which usually gets a decent amount of snow (though not this winter). I got these tires in preparation of Vermont winters and their hilly terrain. Ironically, I've gotten more snow and ice time on these tires in Buffalo. Regardless, the tires made my already stable Civic rides feel like the car is glued to the road. Unplowed streets after heavy overnight snow have not been an issue, outside of the low position of the Civic pushing the top of snow drifts. These tires had a noticeable change in road grip, and I had no issues with the road noise of these snow tires, unlike my girlfriend's snow tires which are near deafening on the highway. I usually prefer all-season tires year around, but if you need snow tires, these are top grade!

I bought a 2010 Silverado 3 yrs ago that had blizzak tires and was sold at how well the vehicle handled during upstate new york winter conditions. So when we purchased my wifes malibu last yr and she struggled through the winter with all purpose radials because I could find the blizzaks no where I was determined to get them this yr. My wife stated the tires were awesome and was well pleased with results.

It is like night and day, the difference between these tires and less dedicated snow tires. I use WS-80s for ice racing and they are almost as good as street legal studded tires on the ice, which I've also used. Although I've only raced them on ice, they perform very well with spirited driving on summer roads, wet and dry. WS-80s I installed in December, and drove on all year until next December, still retained most of their tread depth and provided the same great snow traction.

I put snow tires on all of the family cars and these are the best. If I don't have a Blizzak tire on my car it is because I couldn't find them for the season.

Have had blizzards since 1998 excellent choice. we live in high snow area. Travel country roads and city. Lots of miles winter and summer. Great all around for winter where you get dry pavement and deep snow.

These tires are the best in the world. I haven't had them very long, but they have changed my winter driving experience 100%. My car was basically out of control at all times during ANY amount of snow with all weather tires...but now with these I feel so secure and grounded. I HIGHLY recommend them!!

These tires are great in snow(light and deeper snow) and ice and slush. Very much in control when driving in poor conditions. However, in dry pavement and wet pavement, tires don't provide a lot of traction and steering at highway speeds feels very unstable. Defintley cannot say I feel confident driving at higher speeds on these tires.
