So BManz as far as the snow and ice go well here you go. We do have quite a bit of it up here in Anchorage! And we are getting more snow as I speak
The snow... just regular snow fall, I'm not talking about hard packed snow or anything, these tires do quite well! I am impressed. I haven't taken it in any deep snow or anything, but on non-plowed regular roads these do well.
Now on the ice, they don't do that well. (I didn't expect them to anyway, I don't think there are any tires out there that do great on ice) I'm not saying they are horrible, but they aren't that great. Don't ask me to make an immediate stop on ice let me put it that way.
Hard packed snow, they do fairly well, I am comfortable enough to drive with these tires on packed snow and being able to stop.
I would recommend these tires, but know that they aren't Blizzak tires or Ipikes which are made for the snow and ice. You have to drive more cautiously during the winter with the Coopers on. But so far I am pleased with them! (With snow on the ground, I put the Jeep in "Snow" mode, just a fyi, so the review with these tires working in the snow is in Snow mode not Auto!)
