Initial Review, 50,000 Miles on Tires
September 27, 2012

Outstanding tire. The OEM tire on my Toyota Highlander was a Toyo 245/55/19. For those with the same SUV, you know that there are very few choices in tires at that size. The OEM tires were horrible in the snow and only lasted around 25,000 miles. There was no way I was going to put those on again.

I took a shot on these tires, despite the different size, on and now have over 50,000 miles on them. They are very good in the Wisconsin winters. I have not run into a situation where they did not perform well (wet, dry or snow). I take my corners fast and have not ever noticed a squeel or loss of traction. This past year was a rough one on the roads. I've hit numerous potholes, roads under construction, etc and they have held up better than I could possibly expect.

The only downside is that I lost about 2 MPG on these tires -- may be due to the wider tire than OEM or may be due to rolling resistance. I don't know but I don't care. The performance and longevity more than make up for the loss in gas mileage.
