Initial Review, 6,000 Miles on Tires
I have to giggle when I see someone complaining about an "all season" tire's lack of snow traction; it shows their ignorance. I bought two of these to match the ones already on the car I just purchased. I gave them 6K miles before commenting. It's a good tire for what it is, that being a standard passenger car tire. Bit noisy at about 43-48 mph but SO minor that unless the windows are closed and the stereo off I doubt you'll notice it. Decent rain performance, very good dry performance, and the price was adequate as well. I keep my car aligned, wheels re-balanced every other rotation (10K miles), and I don't expect a tire with this tread design to do anything in snow except slide. (You want good snow performance? Buy a snow tire.) Satisfied with them and would replace these with the same brand and model.
