I am on my 6th, 3 year, 36K mile leased 4WD Jeep Grand Cherokee. All "all Season" rated tires are not the same in winter driving. Most did pretty well in winter in upstate NY but my previous Jeep (Quadra Trac II) could not get out of its own way in the snow or ice. I know it was the tires and not the Jeep. So I ordered X-IceXi2 for my current lease (also QTII). Before they came in I drove 2 weeks in snow. Even though these new all season tires did pretty well, when I put the X-Ice on there was a HUGE improvement. Stopping, cornering and traction are much, much better in ice, slush, average snow and packed snow. For deep snow they are only OK.

Tires are usually taken for granted, until the road puts them to the test.
