I drove them 17000 miles and took them back for exchange. They would skip, breaking traction accelerating while turning. They tended to hydroplane a little too easily for my comfort. And then in snow, they were dreadful. Every other vehicle got moving faster off a light than my car. I am used to being the first one rolling, putting it in 2nd gear and slipping the clutch out slowly. That was enough, I took them back that day and had another set . I was completely disappointed in the Bridgestones and they are the worst tire I've ever owned. Conversely, the Continentals are the best.
