I have never bought a set of Firestones in my life but these where new when I bought the X5 used. I have had X5's since they came out in 2000 and these are the best overall tire I've had on them. Nothing outstanding but responsive, good in wet, dry and snow and they wear like iron. 30k and look like new. I have replaced more expensive tires at that mileage.

I drive a 09 Toyota Venza. I love my Michelin tires!!
My husband put a different brand on last year. Big mistake.... I will NEVER buy anything but Michelins from now on. I love that you don't hear all the road noise, smooth riding, great traction. We live in KY where you never know about the weather. It could be sunny today an snowing tomorrow. Since my car has 20's it's hard to find this tire size. But I'm so Happy that that this company has these. I would tell everyone to buy them!!! Just remember you get what you pay for!!!

I am really happy with these tires these are the original tires from the factory and I still have a 3rd of the tread left. I love how these tires grip the road in wet and dry road conditions I gave wet traction a 9 out of 10 cause they do spin once in a while but not often but I think that's my fault cause I have a heavy foot but under normal acceleration they have spun a few times but during wet road conditions I don't expect to have a 100% traction but hydroplaning I rated a 7 out of 10 cause under heavy downpour they hydroplane easily but not as bad as most other tires I've had on other vehicles I've owned. Other than the hydroplane issue I would definitely recommend these tires definitely getting these tires again.

I really liked this tire from the start. Excellent read pattern, my first winter we got more than 4 feet of snow within 2 weeks. My truck was one of few vehicles able to just jam its way into a parking spot on top of a pile of snow. My only regret with these tires is that I should have rotated them religiously, as the shop owner told me when I purchased. I did not, I rotated every 10k or so, now they are so unevenly worn and out of balance that i must replace them. I am looking for more of a road tire to keep my mileage up. These were as good or better than the BFG longtrail A/t's it came with, and $40 less per. Yes, a very good tire for highway and O/R. But ROTATE every 5k!

In the winter months I take my little fwd, six cylinder camry up to the ski hill in some pretty gnarly conditions that some people wouldn't drive in. One time we had a good snow dump and the plow trucks had plowed earlier that morning, but when I decided to travel up the fairly steep road, it had about an inch of snow on it with a fairly slippery/ shiny undersurface, and on my studded winter force tires (and my confidence in them) I was able to maintain a speed of 40 mph all the way up with little to no slip or slide and I am sure the people behind me were fairly impressed whenever they caught a glimpse of my increasingly distant car. When the turn off to the mountain came, in celebration I had to pull the e brake and slide the whole off camber corner going 30 and the tires responded awesome and did what I wanted them to do. Couldn't be happier and will definitely buy these tires for every car I own!!

Wow what a tire! I replaced Michelin Energy Savers with Defender. The result was astounding! I no longer get stuck in the snow, and do not have to wear ear plugs. Cornering both wet and dry improved substantially.
So Huge plus for the tire:
Quet, long lasting (after 20K no wear shows), great traction.
Downside: very expensive.

Great tire. Just bought 4 to replace the OEM Michelins that came on my 2012 Lexus RX350 AWD. The Michelins performed well and wore well, but I didn't want to pay the premium, and I wanted a V-rated tire, I took a chance on the Pirelli Plus tires based on Tire Rack's customer reviews. After 1,000 miles of city and highway driving, I could not be happier. These tires are very quiet, are very sure-footed, and handle very well -- my SUV goes exactly where I point it and I can confidently take tight curves at speed. I can't yet vouch for how they handle on wet pavement or in snow yet, but I am confident that they will be fine. I think Pirelli has a winner with this tire.

I bought these tires mostly to reduce the road noise from the previously mounted "traction" tires. They still whine a bit at highway speeds, but much better than my last set of tires. I haven't had the chance to try them out in "heavy" snow yet, but I expect they will be adequate for most driving conditions that I encounter.

I bought these tires because a friend recomended them. I had Brigestone Revo's that lasted only 33000 miles before they were shot. He had these on his truck for 43000 miles and they still looked good. The ride is better now and even though the tread doesn't look very aggressive they performed very well in the snow last winter

I replaced my BFG tires at 20,000 miles due to extreme noise. To get these Pirelli's I dropped width from 235 to 225, but with the Pirelli the spec size virtually identical to OEM. Quiet, wonderfully quiet. My Tucson feels glued to the road. Too much winter had passed for me to get significant light snow results, and no deep snow. SUVi in summer storage while I drive other cars. So I will review again mid winter.

Meanwhile, these tires rock. I really debated hard to not put these on my Sonata and honest, I have some regrets. The Continentals on that car though are satisfying. One would not go wrong with either. P7's look terrific, Ride is awesome.

These tires are really, really nice. I intentionally purchased them in October to have a fresh set of tires for the wet winter weather. Living in Atlanta and routinely traveling GA400 and I85/I75 during adverse conditions, I wanted a set of great tires. These tires fit the bill perfectly and deliver great performance. I traveled the 2013 winter snow shutdown in Atlanta and the tires were fantastic. They are wearing very well and would definitely recommend them and purchase another set.

The only complaint I have with this tire as others have said it wore our very quickly. At 23000 miles only 4-5 32nds left. Totally unacceptable for an expensive tire rate for 60000 miles. Now the tire is noisy because the tread is getting thin.

Replaced Michelin MXV4s and love this tire and the wear. The Michelins were great but expensive and I went through them in 35K. The Pirellis don’t even show much wear at 10K. Had ‘em through the winter, and it was a tough one, and the tires did great in heavy snow and ice. These tires are quiet but so were the Michelins (until they got to about 25K). Looking forward to getting about 60K+ on these tires. You won’t regret buying these tires. I haven’t. Bought two more sets for a S60 and a Ford Fusion and everyone loves them.

Bought them thru TireRack and had them shipped to, and installed, at a local NTB. Everything worked out great and TireRack even worked out a problem at the dealer (dealer’s problem).

I drive a 2013 Dodge Avenger se with the 3.6 engine. These are the oem tires that came with the car. The dry traction grip is ok when accelerating from a dead stop but I have had better response with bridgestone and falcon tires. These tire are not that bad and have done better in wet traction with some of these flash flood rains we have in Florida. I am not sure about tread life but when these go bad I might look for a tire with a little more dry traction grip to handle the horsepower of the 3.6 of the Avenger. I think this will also help with the torque steer. To summarize, a good OEM tire that does ok in most situations but not the best in one.
