But they would make a nice old timey swingset for the kids.

They are rated to be better in the cold weather than the GXP tires. I guess it is personal opinion on whether or not they are.

MY personal opinion (since I've owned both an N/A Sol and a GXP through two winters each) is that the N/A tires will have better cold TEMPERATURE performance than the GXP summer only tires, as the summer only tires get really hard and slip a lot when the temp drops too low.

I wouldn't necessarily rate them any better for snow performance, though.
