Better than all the others

Put these on my full size GMC truck in 17" size. I've driven on wet ice, dry cold snow, sloppy deep snow, dry cold remote interstates and heavy rain. 4000 miles so far. These are the best snows I've had yet, excellent dry stability, they don't follow ruts or get blown around on windy days, they brake very well and a huge deer in the UP is glad that they do. These tires are very forgiving in breakaway conditions instilling high confidence as they maintain grip and stay predictable. I'm a convert with 30 years of snow tire experience this is the go to tire for my cars and trucks now.
