Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

Ok, I have had these tires (205/55RF-16 Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT ) on my car (2008 328i) for about 6,000 miles now. I put them on during the beginning of fall (2012) and I really like them. I drive through some winter weather in Cleveland, Ohio and they do well. I was worried that I would need snow tires but since driving through a couple of storms, I have gained a ton of confidence in these tires. For powder and slush, no problem whatsoever. The only time I notice the traction control kick in is when the slushy snow is deeper than 2-3 inches. Then I notice the car looking for bite with the tires and the traction control takes over. Depending on how roads are plowed and salted really makes a difference. I don't have anything to compare them too except for summer tires so unfortunately my opinion on winter driving in a BMW is limited to this winter, but we have had alot of snow fall. I give these tires two thumbs up
