Okay, I am not into the rogue specifics of tires as I am not a mechanic nor car expert, just a commuting, high-mileage, everyday driver. I purchased these as a part of a closeout deal and the Turanzas I wanted were not in stock. Before purchasing, I read reviews online and found more good comments than bad - I simply should've listened. I drive an everage of 45k miles annually; therefore, I get considerable use out of my tires. These tires are extremely and uncomfortably loud (I did not recognize what a loud tire was until I had these). I am not impressed with their performance on wet roads and definitely not in the snow. I've had them for about 8 months and they are already cupping and showing signs of uneven wear. My car shimmies when braking from high speed. I was told I needed new struts (although they are not leaking), but I believe it is these horrible tires contributing to their own wear. They have been rotated at least 3 times since purchase. I see now why they were discontinued..Pure garbage! Now I have to purchase new tires and these will barely be a year old.
