I am nearing the time to replace my OEM tires of this type and am shocked at the reviews I am seeing. Because I was so pleased with the performance of these tires, I was comparing them against others available. For the price I don't think they can be beat, however I may pay a bit more and upgrade to the Continental LX20. I will probably have 65000 miles on them when I change and up to this date without so much as a flat. Since the car was new I have averaged about 26 MPG which is at the high end of mileage but then again 90% of my driving is highway.
