Consumer Reports is correct, these are the #1 winter tires. I have now bought and installed 6 sets of these on 6 family vehicles over the last 10 years, and i live in Northern/central British Columbia and I ski so they get lots of challenges on snowy and icy roads. I would not allol my daughters to drive their cars in the winter without XICE tires. The tread pattern does not look like a winter tire but it sure works.

Tires are usually taken for granted, until the road puts them to the test.
