but that's the thing....
It's a studless snow & ice, not an ice tire.
They do awesome in the snow, and i have to actually try to break traction otherwise its just easy driving.....but when it gets slushy is when it gets sketchy.....like understeering and trying to turn but just going straight. Braking wasn't bad (that I noticed) but turning/steering was
Again this is only with slush, and they are still great tires. Also they are pretty good on gravel compared to the summers I had, and the all-seasons I had before them.
