I have had these tires on for about 2 months now and I can say I have been very pleased with their performance. I have 185/60r14s on 14x5.5 steel wheels on the front and 195/60r15s on 15x6.5 steel wheels on the back of my 1993 Toyota MR2. FWIW I am also running a 3mm spacer in the back. My car has no driver aids nor does it have anti-lock brakes. I bought the tires new from TireRack (live 3 miles from their distribution center) and got the wheels from the local junkyard for $7.50 a piece on 50% off day. Initially I assumed they would be very squishy and miserable in the dry. Much to my surprise, they are not bad at all. Sure they are no summer tire, but they don't make me feel as though I am going to roll the car over in every turn. Not bad at all in my opinion. Cut to the first snow. We got about 6" on a Saturday and I figured why not go see what the car can do. After all, this is my daily driver and I need to know what I'm getting into. I was very impressed. I had no trouble driving through 6" of fresh snow. At points the snow would be 8-9" deep and would come up over the front of the car as the low nose plowed through. I did several stops and starts with much success. Tire spin was very predictable on starts and much more minimal that I would have expected and braking was MUCH better than I thought it would be. Several times on straight roads with no traffic I applied the brake linearly until the fronts locked up when I would back off until I was right at the threshold for braking/slipping. I had MUCH more braking power than I expected and was able to easily stop in 6-8" of snow almost as if I was on dry pavement. I drove up an down inclines of varying grade and never once felt out of control. The limits of the tires/car were very easy to find. The rear end was easy to swing out and hold there with some liberal right foot and counter steer but it was very predictable and never once did I spin the car out. I have also, more recently, driven the car on slushy/icy roads and the tires performed admirably. They clear slush very well and provide some ice grip where cars around me had none at all. There is a fairly steep hill leaving my office I have to navigate every evening. 10 days or so ago, there was wet fresh snow (about 2" or so) on the ground and more falling as I left the office. I planned for the worst and just assumed I would get stopped on the hill at the light. Well of course that was my luck. Stopped 4 cars from the top on the steepest portion of the incline. When the light changed all the cars in front of me (with the exception of the first guy in line who was on the crest already) were unable to move forward. The guy in second car in line stuck his arm out the window and began to wave people by as he knew he wasn't moving. The next lane over was empty (we were all waiting in the right turn lane an no one goes straight at this light because it just goes to a gas station. This makes the next lane over always empty.) After I saw a Subaru Outback and a Dodge RAM 1500 successfully turn into the other lane and spin their way up the hill I decided I would try. With no one coming I stuck it in gear (manual transmission) and, honestly, a bit to mu surprise started to move forward. I swung it into the next lane and continued up the hill with no wheel spin. I stopped at the top next to the guy waving and made the right turn. This sold me, not only on winter tires in general, but on the Generals. An excellent tire for the cost and have allowed me to drive my car in situations I would have never though possible.
