^Thanks, going on winter #5 with them. You go anywhere, and honestly 99% of time I could get around in just 2wd. 4wd its a tank. Also run some on wife's Fwd Mazda 3. They have a soft compound and are heavily siped. Awesome on snow, ice they work 10 times better than an all-season, but ice is still ice. If you look at tirerack.com
's ice rink test, the 3 studless tires they tested beat a studded tire. But I think a perfect smooth ice rink provided a perfect suction cup for the studless tires.
As for the Winterforce, one of the best bangs for the buck out there, they work well. Many friends run them, though I think I'll stick w/ another set of Blizzaks or some studless Nokian's when these wear out.
