  1. Thank you for this review. Do you mean freezing cold or freezing ice and rain in your statement above as I live in New England and do want a tire I can use in very cold weather. Also, I have heard these are very quiet tires, I hope they are.

    Thanks again

    1. No, you can’t use them in freezing cold weather. They are all season tires. If you want tires that can be used in extreme cold then type in snow tires into the search bar and it will show you some great articles on that.
