Had these tires for one year. Put a little over 30, 000 miles on them in that time. The ride is (compared to the Goodyear Assurance tires that were previously on the car) very smooth and quiet. Wet traction is 100 times better than the Goodyears. No more sliding around in the rain. The tires are also a vast improvement in the snow and ice. Hands down these tires blow away Goodyear. The only negative I see is the low speed rating for these tires; but you just can't beat the price. Will definitely buy these tires again from Tire Rack.
