Anyone know the difference or have experience with these tires? Also interested in Bridgestone's performance snow tires. Don't need max snow traction as I drive my truck most of the Winter.

I got LM-25 RFT because I was afraid that the ride is going to be too soft with the non-rft winter tires. My suspension is also modded. I put around 4K mi on these last winter and am impressed at the winter grip on dry winter roads and steering response considering the winter rubber compound. As others have noted you have to modulate the throttle on wet roads but no issues whatsoever. Just my 2c...
