You can't compare these tyres with an A brand like Conti or Michelin. For a low budget these Vikings are the best winter tyres I have driven. Excellent comfort, and wet grip. Road feedback and handling are nowhere near the A brand tyres, but not as bad as I make it sound. Wear is good. Only thing I didn't like was the road noise they make, energy label is also pretty low. Not very economic tyres. All in all, very good tyres if you have a low budget. Can recommend!
