First significant snow in my part of the Northeast last night since 2010 so I finally had a chance to put my P195 65 15 Michelin Ice-X12 winter tires to the test.

Visually, the tires do not look that aggressive so I had my doubts but all that changed after driving in bad snow/ice conditions. Best snow driving experience ever! The car felt very secure with minimum wheel spin. Under load, the traction control did engage a bit but not as much as other TC equipped cars I have owned.
