I have owned and driven on Dunlop Winter 3DS, Pirelli SottoZero, Continental Winter Contacts, and Michelin Pilot Alpins. So far for the given road conditions the bridgestones by far have the least grip especially when its damp. It could be the tires are too narrow for this car (235/245). I inherited them with the car when i bought it. I would reserve judgement for snow as haven't had the opportunity. I'm sure they will work just fine on packed snow. I have a dedicated winter car. But after first driving on the bridgestones I knew exactly where to use them up at.
