I agree. Bought a set in dec 18. Terrible in any snow. Deep snow dangerous. Had to wait until streets were salted and clear before driving. Went w/ Dedicated snows in 19. Back to confident driving in any snow. That said, in non snow weather G4ís have good rolling resistance, 34 mpg Hywy. Good in rain, very little slippage, and I expect aggressive performance from a tire. Good cornering in dry. Good wear approx 30k miles and about 1/2 worn. I actually wish theyíd where out so I could get some thing else. Verdestein(spelling) seems like they really are an all weather tire and good performance in most other areas, per Tire Rack reviews. Probably my next pick.
G4 are not all weather even though they say so. I donít think they are even a good all season. There are other all seasons out there that are better. They have a good aggressive tread appearance, but thatís it. The old G3Ďs were supposedly good in the snow but wore quickly. I think they made the G4 too hard of rubber. So yah, pretty much same experience you had.
