Initial Review, 7,000 Miles on Tires
April 10, 2012

I drive 950 miles a week to and from work mostly on 2 lane roads. Purchased this tire to replace Michelin Weatherhandler from Sears. While the Michelin tires were a very good tire, this is a much quieter tire with much better ride. Traction was good in snow. Handling was about a half step below the Michelins. To be fair, I should note that I went from a 185/15 tire to a 195/15 tire (a taller sidewall) to correct a 3 mph error that the Prius speedometer reflected. (Speedometer would read 60 when the actual speed was 57.) As the tire was taller, I compensated by increasing the air pressure by 5 lbs over the normal pressure. There was no loss in fuel mileage with this setup over the Michelins. I would not hesitate to buy these tires again.
