Love my brand new Maxtrek Winter Tires. I live in the Yukon, our winter's are long and cold. Road's can be very icy and snowy. These Tires stick on icy roads, absolutely no problems in deep snow either. If you would like to buy a great Winter Tire, you can buy the Maxtrek Winter Tire without a second thought. I can not give any rating on wear yet, because I just bought these Tires in September.
Living off road in North Yorkshire, England, I know how important tyre choice is and recently replaced my 1998 Subaru Forester with a later 2005 model. It came in November already fitted with four new Maxtrek Trek M7’s, we have a little snow and a lot of ice right now but these tyres are up to it ! !
I live in Vancouver BC Canada we had plenty of snow and our streets were awful to drive, my tires gave a superb performance never got stuck, a little gas a little brake effort that's all it took to get out of a sticky situation. Make sure pressure is at normal setting. Unfortunately many drivers here believe that all season tires are good they found out otherwise. Never push the limits of the tire capability and weather situation.
