I had to buy new tires for my car almost immediately after buying my new vehicle. The car came with Hankook tires. Absolutely horrible. Since the tread passed inspection, the dealer couldn't replace them. I did a lot of research to find a good set of touring, all-weather tires, and these Turanzas w/ Serenity had great reviews. Since I bought them, I have never looked back. These tires have performed VERY well. I live in MD, so I get a bit of every kind of weather. These tires have held up extremely well. Even now, as I approach their end of life, they still perform extremely well. Wet, dry, ice, snow, sand... doesn't matter. I highly recommend these tires to anyone that is looking for a good set of all-weather, touring tires with a quiet and comfortable ride. You will NOT be disappointed.
