I cannot speak for how they might handle in colder weather/conditions, but they aren't A/S tires so I wouldn't recommend using them in places where there is 'real' winter.

I just swapped out the rear tires, but I'm still on my first set of fronts. I'll have to dig back through the records on what my mileage was, but I got about 2-years of steady use out of the rears and the fronts are still going.
Just took Sumi HTRZ II off and got 1 year and 10k out of the rears. Can't believe how smooth and quiet my ride is. It's like a luxury sports car now. The ride is perfect and silent.
