They aren't too bad. I live in upstate NY and had them on for a bit at the start of last winter. About what you'd expect for an average all-season. They go just fine with AWD but turning and braking are iffy. That being said, I did buy a set of winter wheels and tires which I ran most of last winter. Of course it was one of the least snowy and warmest winters ever here so they didn't really get a workout. I guess it depends on what you are doing. I switched to a dedicated winter setup because I was regularly out and about for work early enough that the plows hadn't been by yet on most days. I also believe that the all-season tire is too much a compromise and prefer to have a dedicated winter setup to get all the benefits of braking and turning they provide.
Of course it is amazing what traction control and awd can do even with all-seasons.
