Initial Review, 80,000 Miles on Tires
January 13, 2013

I've put 80,000 miles in approximately 24 months on these tires driving all over Texas, Louisiana & Mississippi.
I will buy these again as I will probably get 100k miles of great performance out of them.
The limit hydroplaning I've experienced with these could not be blamed on the tires; but instead torrential downpours & crappy roads.
I have slid through a red light trying to stop in the rain when I first got them; but that is probably more related to factors unrelated to these tires.
Additionally I usually drive 90 mph on the interstate and have been known to hit 140 mph in my Camry with these tires.
I did also notice about 1 mpg improvement over my last tires.
Granted I have them balanced and rotated religiously every 6k miles. Bought this plan when I bought the tires.
100k miles @ 29 gpm = 3,348 gallons
100k miles @ 30 gpm = 3,333 gallons
A difference of 115 gallons and at $3.50/gallon is a savings of over $400 over the life of these tires.
I did not need any cold weather driving tires so if you are in a similar situation look no further than these tires and I hope you have the same experience as I.

I usually throw out high and low ratings such as this one as I figured they are squewed opinions; but mine is legit.
I have no relationship to any car, tire, oil company etc...I work in the maritime service industry and travel 150 miles round trip to work and attend as much training as I'm offered. Seeing how I'm on the clock when traveling and I'm paid $.55/mile I choose to drive as I get 30 mpg and it cost me $3.50/gallon of gas and I'm paid $16.50 for driving 30 miles.
