Did you go to tirerack.com? http://www.tirerack.com/survey/SurveyComments.jsp?additionalComments=y&commentStatus=P&tireMake=Michelin&tireModel=HydroEdge There are 57 reviews of the Hydroedge. You should go and read them. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Michelin&tireModel=HydroEdge The worst rating was 7.7 out of 10 for snow with a 9.3 for dry traction and 9.4 for wet traction.
