I had the 3D's on my Audi for 2 winters and performed remarkably well compared to Hakkas, X ice, and Blizzaks performance wise.

Living in Calgary (somewhat mild climate with Chinooks) that is IMO the best choice of tire. 80-90% of the winters here are somewhat mild with very little to no ice and snow on the roads. I drive pretty spirited in winter with 3D's & Quattro and I wouldnt dare to hit speeds around corners with other winter tires.

Are there better performing winter tires on Ice...of course there are but you will most definitely be sacrificing performance.
