              Comments about Primacy Alpin PA3:

              I live in SW Ohio and we get occasional snowstorms, and the OE tires didn't cut it for driving in snow. I prefer having winter tires mounted to their own rims, to make changing for different seasons easier. I have used Michelin snows for all of my cars. The place where these tires pay for themselves is when you start. They grip the snow and get you moving, once going they give good feedback. My favorite part of winter driving is having an open road and being able to run hard. These tires are up to the task. If you're driving your all season tires in the snow and are passed by an orange Beetle, be sure to wave.

                    Always a trusted brand for me. I went with these tires for 5 months already. They're great so far with everything from traction, handling, braking, rain. I can't complain because there is nothing to complain about.

                          Great overall tire for performance AWD vehicles. Does reasonably well on ice, which is rare where I drive anyway. Great grip in the snow, and very good at resisting hydroplaning in the wet. Only drawback would be severe ice, but I have had this tire in 2 foot plus snow and just fly through it like nothing. Excellent, noticeable improvement in gas mileage with the Green X rating - not just a gimmick!
