Rated 5 out of 5 by Subarudriver Other tires, don't even think about it.
After using two sets of Winter Slaloms with major satisfaction, one on my Subaru Forester (which lasted six seasons) and one for my Toyota Cressida, and because of availability where I buy tires, I recently switched to another MAJOR brand of winter tire which contains the name "ice" for the Subaru and discovered to my horror that they do not get any where near the mileage, and, they do not perform in icy conditions like the Winter Slalom, which caused my Subaru to completely loose traction on an icy patch of highway, slam into a guardrail and TOTAL it! I never, ever lost traction under any conditions with the Winter Slalom. Lovely way to learn a lesson about accepting second best, no matter the big-name identity. Do not use any other winter tire than Winter Slalom.

My job requires me to drive through two mountain passes at least once a week. In the winter, these tires give me the secure feeling that I will make it through the snow and slush which is commonplace here in the Northwest six months of the year. When I see "traction tires are required", I don't have to worry. I just drive right through without any concerns.

There was some minor improvement in traction, but I noted nothing that was clearly superior to any other winter tire that I have driven on.

My truck is 2 wheel drive, I've never had need for a 4x4. When winter comes to Pennsylvania I want a set of winter tires that I can count on.
