Default Falken ze-512 snow performance

I am looking for new A/S tires, have read alot of good things about these tires, but no real reviews of how they are in the snow. Right now its between these and the Potenza G009 which is more expensive. I am intereseted to hear peoples experiences with the falkens in the snow. I need a tire that is decent in the snow, but I didnt have any problems with the Cooper Lifeliners that were on my car when I got it. How would the Falkens compare snow wise to somethig like that, a T rated touring tire, ? I kinda like the fact that the Falkens are ~40 apeice.


Thanks

Jeremy

I used a set of them last winter. I never had a problem getting traction, or getting hung up.

I had them on my previous daily driver: 2003 Nissan Maxima SE 6-speed. They were allright in the snow, but not great. With AWD you will have less troubles I'm sure. The Maxima had too much torque which caused most of the issues. It's far from a deep snow tire though, thats for sure...
