I tried this tyre in all kind of road and situations due to the fact that i travel a lot. I decided to ditch the continentals, too much money and average performance. So i went for the gripmax because of the dedicated to the SUVs brand and value of course, however i was kind of disappointed. Being a winter tyre it is the only purpose they serve, very good on deep snow even on 30-40cm, but average braking and cornering when up to speed in 2-3cm of snow. On the dry they are ok, but noisy. On the wet they are progressive inside the city, but aquaplaning is dangerous when the speed increases. The front tyres lasted about 10k km.
It is a budget tyre and i did not expected a lot, however there are way better options to go for. Next winter i will do more research before i purchase.
