Pros: Aggressive tread means sure traction in snow.
Cons: Noisy on pavement due to tread design.

Pros: Average on snow, average price.
Cons: Noise, vibration.
Summary: Pacemaker Snowtrakkers ST2. Overall impression - worse than average. They are pretty good on snow, not bad on ice, but AWFUL on dry pavement, especially on highways, when you go over 55 mph (or 90 kmh). The noise and vibration are unbearable! Just made ... read more

Pros: excellent snow traction, cheap price, good tread life, studdable
Cons: need studs, newer studless tires available at about the same price

Pros: Excellent traction in snow, good traction on wet and dry roads.
Summary: My car is a 1997 Ford Escort. This tire is an excellent snow tire, regardless of it's cheap price. Much better snow traction than a normal all season tire. I drove through about 5 snow storms in 2004-2005 and never had a traction problem. They are ... read more

Pros: Traction in ice and snow, safety, and price.
Cons: A little noisy on dry pavement because of the tread design.
Summary: I live in Canada, north or Toronto. These tires gave excellent snow and ice traction, as well as excellent dry pavement handling. We drive on them every day, they also prevented two accidents. I would say these are better than Artic Alpin. They are also ... read more
