After only about 1,500 miles, it's early to judge some of the rating categories. But we can say the tires are doing a great job in snow and on slippery roads in Upstate New York. Though Subaru vehicles are great in those conditions to begin with, these tires offer a noticeable improvement in winter conditions, especially stopping in snow/slush.

Excellent winter tires. I added studs which made the noise level higher, but definitely worth the security on winter roads.

These are fantastic tires for the winter, they have very aggressive tread that dig into everything. The only down fall about these tires is the noise level on the road. They are very loud. But if that doesn't bother you these tires are great in every other performance.

Bought this tire before for an E-250 work van and was very happy with the traction in light snow and parking lots with lots of snow. Bought these for my college bound daughter and feel secure that she will be as safe as possible.

We live in a rural area and have a long uphill driveway. Snow tires required for terrain. Ford Fusion is light in the front end. These tires are the best to meet our Winter driving needs especially all snow conditions

I really like the winterforce tire they got me up hills no problem in snow and slush I was really surprised when I made it home from work (a 50 minute drive on mostly country roads) in 6 inches of snow with drifts well over a foot I've had my Honda for 8 years and it never went threw snow that deep before I've tried and failed but thanks to the winterforce my winter driving has become a new experience and the tire ware is hardly noticeable I'll have them another 2 maybe 3 seasons, if my old Honda last that long I'm pushing the 300,000 mark now, I'll be definitely be buying a set for my new VW wagon for this winter

Totally awesome in ice and snow. Have to be patient with 4x4's in front of me and wait for a safe moment to get around. The performance envelope of the tires far exceeds the capability of anything with off road capability, so I can't say anything about dry handling of the tires.

Not a tire to be run on Hot pavement but for the Winter these tires are one of the Best tires I have run across. I feel like I am in a Tank with these tires, meaning I could tackle any road condition confidently.

So far very happy looking forward to seeing how they work in the snow, my car handles pretty good in winter but I think these tires will make it even better. I like my Cole Muffler shop in Auburn they take very good care of me and my car. Thank you.

During the first sloppy snow I was unable to crest a hill heading home. Backed down the hill pulled into Mavis in Cobleskill, explained my dilemma and Rocco suggested these tires. Had NO PROBLEM getting up the hill and was home in a flash!

so far this year with all the snow we've had, they have been awesome! I live on top of a hill and usually get stuck 90% of the time and most often have to take an alternate route. a couple of weeks ago we had several inches of snow with a sheet of sleet on top and the plows hadn't came through yet, the shroud was slicing through the sleet and the snow was blowing over the hood and I hardly spun a wheel all the way to the top. I was in awe, I couldn't believe it, truly awesome!!

I bought a pair of these for the rear of my vehicle simply to get the size I wanted, and have run them about 1500 miles. The first trip it snowed and I purposely went into an unplowed parking lot to get a feel for how they'd handle. It's difficult to break them loose, with the old tires I could make the van do donuts if I cranked it hard, but with these tires they spin a little if at all and then grab and I really need to put a set on the front as it just pushes ahead, the fronts (another brand) don't grab as well. Even with 2 wheel drive and an open differential, you should be able to get most anywhere you need to go with a set of these on the vehicle. How they will wear remains to be seen. But I was a little surprised and quite happy with them.

First year going with snow vs. the all seasons. Consider myself a good driver and very experienced. The difference is night and day. these tires have made my ride through the Northeast as if I was in a new vehicle. A little loud at 65mph but not terrible. Would recommend and would buy again.

I keep these tires on 3 of my cars year round. They're a great tire! My neighbor bough a set and he loves them! They make a little noise. Although, they look like they would be much louder.
