I saw the tirerack videos and reviews too, so that's why I bought them. However, my real life experience: they can't compare with my snow tires (Continental ExtremeWinterContact). The DWS are good for the first day of snow and don't have time to change to snow tires. After a day when the snow hardens, the slipping becomes obvious. They are great tires but can't defy physics.
