Sorry cant help you out because I never use them nor do I have a bad winter here in Cali. Go to tire rack or easy tire and read their reviews on all season tires.

Yeah I have heard good things about them, I am not sure where you are located but how do they hook and feel in the rain/snow? And I think the eagle GT are being discontinued so I want to find them before there all gone.

i have 255 40r 19 goodyear eagle supercar tires all around and they are good in the dry and wet conditions but idk about snow? as far as all season you should look at the Michelin defenders or a goodyear all season tire. michelin would proably grip the best and last the longest too

I've driven on ice with the Pirelli pzero they held pretty decent. Driven in snow with them also at freeway speeds 65-75mph they did good, passed several other cars that had mixed it up with guard rails and slid off the road.

Since you seem to be one of the only few ones that haven drive on the snow n ice, may have to go with these. Where did you buy them from a site or a store?

Store, discount tire.

Also if you have traction control leave it on, other wise be careful.

I have Continental Extreme Contact DWS. Pushed thru 4-5 inches of fresh snow this am just fine. This afternoon on graded road was very good. A little spinning when taking off but good stability when rolling.
Seemed as good or better than the FWD cars sharing the road. I bought set of 4 from a guy that purchased them from Tire Rack. You can check the reviews.
I will buy them again.

That sounds great, because I live near Boston, MA and some winters we get hit hard here. Who makes the tires? And also how much did you pay?
