This tire grips fairly well on dry pavement, but they lack in the snow as a lot of A/S tires do. My one complaint is I had one fail and almost literally fall apart when just shy of 60,000 miles. I'm on the conservative side in my driving so I was surprised to see that happen. It's the first tire I've had this happen to in all the cars and tires I've bought over the years.

I bought these tires thinking I would never have to drive in the mountains during winter conditions..Well guess what happened. I spent the Christmas holidays up in the mountains. We got 2 to 3 inches of snow on Christmas eve and my son drove my RAV-4 v-6 and put though all kinds of tests, emergency braking, up and down icy hills and roads, corners and he could not break the vehicle loose. The RAV-4 rides much better than the OME dessert duelers. The real trick on driving on black ice is to not go faster than road conditions allow..For the next 3 days I was going from black ice to dry pavement many times and the tires were flawless. Now when the outside tread wears down I would not expect these tire to handle like new ones since they are A/S and don't have much siping in the tread..Happy with the purchase
