Turned out to be a pretty good tire. Have about 60,000 miles on them and the W and S are worn away, leaving only the D. Handled well, rode well and were great in the rain and what little snow we got last year. Going to be replacing them shortly and am going to try the Michelin MXV4
Initial Review: 10,000 miles on tires

Have about 10,000 miles on the tires now and my only complaint is the steering response. Manufacture recommends 30psi front and rear, but at this these tires are very sluggish and unresponsive. Raised to 35psi and is much better.

Another not is the MPG, I keep records after every fill-up and was averaging 27mpg throughout the previous 50,000 miles and so far on this 10,000 miles the MPG is down to 24.
