Consumer Reports tested the Firestone, Kumho, and Michelin mentioned in all conditions, including snow and ice. Michelin LTX was very highly rated for Winter use, even though it's a year round use tire. The Kumho SAT was almost as highly rated for Winter use, even though it's a year round use tire, and the Kumho SAT is low cost. The Firestone was not highly rated for Winter use. It did OK on snow, but poor on ice. The Micheline LTX and Kumho SAT performed excellent on snow and good on ice.
If Winter driving safety is important, then I would not recommend the Firestone. The Kumho SAT is much better at a similar, or possibly even lower, cost.
