I am blown away by these tires. For the past four years I had the Gislaved winter tires that I got from the dealer when I bought the van. They were always mediocre, even when new. These tires are incredible. My van weighs 4400 lbs, and I drive with a somewhat heavy foot. You have to work very, very hard to lose grip or traction with these tires. I really can't recommend them strongly enough. Snow, such, slick ice underneath compacted snow - all conquered by these tires.

These tires are fantastic on my vehicle, even though it’s a front wheel drive car, the performance on wet, snow and ice are awesome. The noise level on these tires are even better than my all season tires. The grip on dry roads is not that well, but that’s not what you’re trying to drive so aggressively on the corners with winter tires. Speeding rating is also lower than other winter tire but who cares! Very comfortable riding, and definitely will buy it again!!!

So far I have found that these tires have good grip in snow. Other people in my neighbourhood were sliding when the temperature dropped and the roads became icy but I have not had issues with traction or stopping. They round corners well and I do not notice noise at all, which is a nice bonus. When I need to repurchase my next set of tires, I wouldn't hesitate to go with these again.

These are best tires in market for noise. Will give 5 for noise. You can’t even feel any tire noise inside the car. They are very good in Snow. For ice performance I will give it 4 as they are one of the best but not the top. They stop well on ice but sometimes your vehicle will slide before coming to complete stop.

I am very pleased with this tire and recommend it. I drive in black ice and moderate snow conditions in the snow belt of southern Ontario. Previously I've been a big fan of Blizzaks w80 but not the version for my SUV Nissan Murano so I did a lot of research and decided on the viking 7, and I am very pleased. First, on cold dry pavement I don't hear the winter-tire whine (highway or city). I really don't like tire-noise, and I couldn't believe I don't hear any difference from my summer tires! They're the best I've never heard! So far we've only had one bad freezing rain day, so I was wondering how they would handle - they're GREAT! We had a few snow days, one the plows weren't out and snow/slush depth was about 6 inches - I had excellent, secure control in cornering, stopping, and good grasp at take-off! This is a new tire so I can't speak to durability, but so far I am very happy and recommending this tire to my friends. Handling on wet pavement was exceptional as well. Comfort is excellent and feel the same as my summers. My mileage is affected but not bad at all - so far they're costing me about $1.00 per tank. I would score this tire 5/5.
