They were alright. I would prefer an A/T for winter, but i'm not changing them out for the M/Ts at a seasonal rate. They aren't safe in slush or deep snow, I did have quite a few close calls. So just drive carefully and you will be fine.
i'd say RimzOneOnline.com is the best source for wheels & tires and packages overall. Excellent services. My XD 20s & 33x12.5/20s were $2490 out the door in 2009, so 4 tires for $2500 is over priced for sure.
