DO NOT USE THOSE FOR WINTER. They are good in slush and fresh snow but next to useless on any ice/crust. The compound is also very hard once temperature goes below freezing they are like pucks.
Yeah, I use those as my summer tires, and a few days before I changed over to my studs (Cooper Discoverers) I went for a long slide down a bridge, ending in a 180 that nearly took me off the road. No bueno. I don't love the Coopers on dry roads, but they never slide on ice or slick snow. Don't know how they'd be without the studs, though.
