I've got Vredestein Quatrac tires on my Forester. Great in cold, wet or snowy conditions. 32psi. I'd air them down in snow, potentially. Yes, I'd buy them again. They're essentially perfect PNW year-round tires. I have no idea how they perform in heat as I don't test my car that way, even though it's boosted.

On my F250 I'm running Sailun Terramax tires and they are fantastic. Great on wet, cold pavement though unlike the Quatrac's they do not carry a three-peak symbol on the sidewall. They are not a rated winter tire but for my uses the performance on slick snow and deep snow is adequate aired down to 20psi on a 6200lb truck. They are Chinese made, which I'm not a fan of, but credit where it's due. They're inexpensive, wear well and are a great road tire. I also had a set of these on a 2003 Acura MDX, same quality performance. I'd absolutely buy them again and recommend them without reservation aside from the aforementioned country of origin. Sometimes I wonder why I even bother.

The Vredestein I would drive on. I wouldn't touch the Sailun with a 1972 pinto. They may be a bit cheaper, but not where I want to save my money.
