Tires were fine when new, although fairly noisy. Did fine for the first winter in colorado, but a year later they were useless in deep snow. Tires get noisier as they age and they do not handle corners well at all (lot's of squealing and slipping). They seemed to last pretty long, I replaced with them when they had 5-6/32nds left because I got a flat (drove about a mile before realizing it was flat) and the tire was ruined. I have all wheel drive and needed to replace all tires at the same time. Tires made the car ride rough (didn't realize how bad these tires were until I replaced them with something else) I bought snow tires and wheels for the winter and replaced the G019's with a summer tire (firestone firehawk wide oval indy 500) - Night and day difference! Love the firestones so far.
