This is my second set of the Dunlops. Great combination of wet & dry handling, and they are superb in snow. Can't be beat for the price.

These tires are wearing like iron. I've kept them on all year to avoid having to buy new all season at inspection time. Great traction in the snow and handle well in the summer months. Only drawback to having them on all year is the tread noise.

Commute several hundred miles each day, early in the morning before roads have been treated or plowed. We have had a mix of snow and ice this year and the tires have performed better than the Nokian WR which I replaced after 25000 miles. These tires are quieter and are wearing better than I anticipated

These good snow tires for people who don't drive in snow everyday. They work great in the snow and provide excellent traction.

These are my favorite compromise snow tires. They offer fairly good winter performance, but will still work under high speed conditions. They are much more stable than Blizzaks at speed.

very good rear wheel traction, even in slush and ice conditions. mustang GT's are not easy cars to drive in the rain and snow, but these tires have made a huge difference in poor-weather driving.

These tires are definitely quieter and smoother than the OEM's. I am not overly impressed with the ice traction considering the all-wheel drive but there is no stability control on this vehicle. Relatively good traction in light and heavy snow but I was expecting better. I chose these tires over Bridgestone Blizzak's mainly for the tread wear and noise level. Unfortunately there are not too many tire brands to choose from in this tire size.

we have had 2 major snow storms of more than 8" as well as 2 ice storms. these tires are the best snow tires i have ever owned. i was out and about town in all sorts of conditions during the storms and had no problem negotiating nor any problem with the steep hills in our area even when the plows had not yet gone by. OUTSTANDING TIRES.

This would be a terrific all-season tire. Lost very little - VERY little from my Pirelli P-zero-nero's when I put these babies on for the winter. Not to mention they are PHENOMENAL in the snow. Hands down the best winter tire I've ever owned.

had a set of these onan Audi S8, for winter only. they were so quiet and handled so well, i almost forgot to put the summer tires on. my 2nd car Passat wagon needed tires.it doesn't get driven that much,and i didn't want to do the winter/summer thing. so i put on a set of the M3's and just leave them on. perfect!! these have to be the most versital
snow tires on the market. great traction when needed in snow,quiet on dry, they refuse to hydroplane,and wear better
than my summer tires. GREAT PRODUCT.
