Ok, so I've driven twice in the snow with them. In the rain, they are like glue, very pleased. Now the snow:
Driving at the beginning of our first snowstorm (8+ inches), I had mixed results... hills and turns at low speed (accelerating from a stop) was very delicate. Seemed to be ok once at speed. Experiment: downshifting while breaking is a definite NO.

DEFINTELY better than the Potenza summers, but seems that just the slightest snow/ice mix causes slipping/spinning. Will give updates as I go...
FYI... these are on stock 18 rims....
