Decent tyre for an old car.
Doesn't provide a great grip in the dry, but it's quite normal for a snow tyre. In the wet these were a massime improvement compared to my old MICHELIN Energy Savers, but definately not a racing tyre (I think the compound is too hard)

Anyway in the snow these tyres are fantastic. Really, they are magic: great traction in every condition. Last winter I was the only car moving in an icy parking lot, impressive.

However I have agree with the review of another user of the ZT5 model: the behavior on uneven roads is very strange. There are strange movements of the steering wheel and you have to be ready to correct them quickly.

good noise levels for a snow tyre

in a couple of words: they don't worth the money.
acceptable grip in the dry, but horrible in the wet.
trust me, these tires are dangerous.

the problem is not the tread design (they don't suffer aquaplaning) but the hard compound. driving on a damp road, especially in winter, was a real nightmare. they seem to be made out of wood just to save few quid of fuel every 10000 miles, and I can't understand why

the sidewall is *very* soft, they are *not* a sporty tire so the ride is very good. quite noisy under hard braking (just now that they are old, not when new)

anyway they last very long, but definately I would not buy them again
