great tire after 33,000 miles. Don't drive crazy too terribly often but when I do these tires give me great grip wet or dry. Don't have any snow or ice to have to deal with so that is no issue here in SE Texas. In the wet I hardly have to change my driving style at all.
Hoping to get about about 10,000 more miles out of this set and seriously considering getting the new 970 model. I have considered summer tires but cannot bear the idea of replacing them again in 12-18 months after spending the money it takes to buy good tires - they are far too important to go cheap on after all!
