I bought these tires for a 2006 prius for use in Wisconsin. In the little snow we have had so far this year they had good traction and stopping. However the problem is that on dry pavement they jump all over the road. They will not track straight so you are continually fighting them at highway speeds. Seem to be worse on grooved pavement. I put a set of these on my daughters 2013 prius as well and she indicates they do not track well. Wish I had bought just a new pair of all season and relied on the new tread for snow traction.

I don't want to change winter/ summer tires <br />and think this is so far not a compromise. <br />With a phone ap noise meter they are quieter than Mich s all seasons that came stock on my Volvo. they <br />improved handling by being a little firmer too. <br />I measured a few treads and found this has 12/32 <br />tread depth versus competing tires 9-11. Hopefully<br />this adds life and offsets higher price. I bought<br />these for hydro plane resistance 1st and am impressed with over all qualities.
