I purchased these tires used from a friend who is a very reputable auto mechanic. I didn't know whether they would be very good to run in the winter as the tread was down to only about 25%. However after going through one of the worst winters here in Wisconsin. I was very surprised how well they performed. I would have preferred more tread but they pulled me through all the deep snow and ice covered roads with no problem at all. I am running into a bit of a problem when running in rutted roads during a rain storm. They want to hydroplane some but there almost down to the wear bars so I mostly attribute it to that. I would certainly highly recommend buying a set of these tires. I suspect I should be able to run them a while longer however am looking at buying a new set. The price for a new set really is fairly affordable compared to other tire brands. Before this set I ran a set of Uniroyal Laredo tires which didn't even make it past 35,000 before they needed to be replaced. With the Bf Goodrich tires I haven't run into any problems with irregular wear due to alignment issues which I struggled with on my last set. Overall I am pleased to say that by picking this tire you will make a good choice for your hard earned dollar. For a more aggressive tire you will be pleased with how quiet they are while running down the road.
