Deep snow, light snow, snow over ice, ridge ice, slush, sleet, anything a Minnesota winter can throw at a driver, these tires can handle, no issues. I use them as my winter shoes on my daily driver and for ice racing on the lakes. Phenomenal grip, low road noise, and I averaged ~1.5mpg better on the X-ice than I did previous years on my blizzaks, and they last easily 3x as many miles as the blizzaks. Down side, they don't corner well on dry pavement sidewall isn't stiff enough, and above 80mph they smell like burning tire, despite a 115mph speed rating. When these wear out, I'll most likely get another set of X-ices.

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