Winter has been tough this year. Plenty of snow. These tires are fantastic in every way. I've used WRs in the past and they do a good job especially since my wife's car and mine are AWD
. I have noticed that these M2 tires grip better on the same hills then the WRs. I only bought these because the previous owner of my Volvo S60 R offered them to me for $125 and they had only been used for one storm before he moved to Florida.
