I'll add in a "me too".  Had them on the car for about a year and 12K miles and
are working great.  Fantastic in the dry/wet, and "good" in the snow.  I live at
the top of a pretty steep little hill that does not get plowed that often, and
we end up with packed powder/ice long after the rest of the roads are dry.
Never had a problem (seen many a cab/delivery truck/PLOW get stuck in front of
my house).  :)

Picking up the car tonight after the wheel bearing issue.  Just as a quick
follow-up, I also, as correctly hypothesized by a few here, took out the hub by
driving on it for so long, but I figure that was a small price for getting
home.  Oh, and yes, i did end up driving it the last 10 miles to the shop on
Monday.  :)
