I agree - the PA3's are a great tire for most of the driving you will be doing. I had them on my car for last winter and was very pleased with their performance. I dont recall using them in icy conditions or real deep snow as I would use the wifes suv those days. I changed my wheel set up this year and intended on using the PA3's again, but a week after I ordered them I was told they were out of stock and went with the Sottozero's as an alternate, but we have not had a real snow to speak of yet for a comparison. Dry condition driving seems very comparable from what I remember.
Car looks great on the winter set up!
