We just purchased these tires for our son's 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT1 this month. They are great in the snow and really grip the road. Our driveway is uphill and these tires easily bring his car safely up the driveway to our house. What a difference from his previous tires. They handle nicely in the rain as well. Our son is a new driver so we wanted to make sure his new tires were going to help him and not hinder him as he learns to drive in all types of weather. The only thing we would prefer would be if the mileage would have been a bit more than the 35,000 stated.
