Recently purchased a 2004 Lexus RX330 with these tires. Thought for an SUV these tires were a little light on the traction side, so I went to the mountains to see what they would do in the snow, didn't have high hopes once I hit the snow but as I got off road into 8 inches of fresh snow I was amazed that I just kept on going, even though the bottom of the car was pushing a bit of snow, the tires didn't spin. Back on the the road, tested the tires on the packed snow/ice by stopping-starting to see what the tires would do and I was surprised at the grip considering these are not snow tires. Went through 12" of dry snow and kept going, WOW!

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