"Have not had the tires long enough to evaluate tire wear. Was in a truck stop parking lot that had only been roughly ploughed. HAD 4" to 8" of snow and slush. These tires got me through that parking lot easily. Have pirelli Scorpion all season tires for non winter driving. The pirelli tires have more road noise than these altimax tires. Have not been on ice yet." - Clifton Springs, NY

I am very happy with these tires. My car holds the road very well for wet / dry / snowy road conditions and it handles excellently. They are quiet and produce very little vibration. I wouldn't even realize that I changed the tires except that the car handles so much better.

Have not had these long, but the studs are great. Have to stay with wide tire due to M-series brakes on back, so limited snow blizzard handling with any tire. Have these for when it snows at work, I can still make it home with the AWD sports car. Was HAPPY Mavis could find them in this size and great Cortland store service!

We live on a privately maintained road. So far this winter I have had no issues driving out at 4 am to go to work. Our town roads are usually not plowed at that hour either and these tires have made my 25 mile commute to work much less stressful!!

Tire life is important as not wanting to continually have to purchase new tires to get good perfomance.
