Given 96% while driving a Subaru BRZ (215/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 300 average miles
I went to a short skiing holiday and drove my new car with anew set of winter tyres over the weekend
Rain on motorway, black ice uphil and a mixture of snow and ice towards the hotel at the top of the mountain (- 9 C). And driving at night on a previously unknown icy mountain road was something I would love to anticipate but withsthe family on board, that was not the case at all.
Driving a real wheel drive car in those conditions always merits extra care. I was carefjl and I felt safe at all times. Car behaved greatly as I thought Subaru would and this is due to the Michelins as well.
Great tyres, tested and prover.

Given 89% while driving a BMW 320D (225/45 R17 H) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
I Purchased a set of these & a set of 17" replica alloys in the Winter of 2009 when it became clear just how bad RWD and Summer tyres were with even just a light dusting of snow.
Excellent wet weather grip & handling, good in the dry. Comfort is light years ahead of the OEM Bridgestones.
The Winter of 2010 was about as hard as I'm ever likely to push them and they never let me down.

The only negative thing I can say about them is traction in deeper snow maybe isn't quite as good as some of their competitors - there was always a little more wheelspin than you'd expect but maybe that's being hyper critical .

However when driving in tricky conditions there was bags of cornering and braking grip available.

After two hard Winters all 4 tyres have 7mm tread remaining (10.5mm when new) which I think is impressive. I'll probably run these for one more Winter then switch to the new Alpin A4 or perhaps the Dunlop 4D.

Overall a great tyre for UK Winters. They excel in cold damp conditions and are easily capable of handling the exceptional amounts of snow we saw in 2010.
