The reviews look good - however I'm still doubtful that they are that
good in snow in cold weather - I didn't see anything about morphing
rubber compound ;) that would remain supple in sub-freezing temperature.
They talk about a tread pattern that is good in wet weather - but again,
based on the amount t of snow Ben gets in his area - this may be
sufficient. Wouldn't fly in NH :)
