The tire cheap and the price I got exactly what I expected. The tire is holding up superbly in the snow, actually behaves like a typical winter tire. The problems start in the wet - it just does not grip the stronger braking. For dry without a problem. And like a typical tire-season, only to be quiet ride that is exactly what I expected. In my opinion, a tire for anyone who prefers a quiet ride, even when buying tires more attention next to the pointer put my wet grip.
