Follow-Up Review: 45,000 miles on tires
December 12, 2012
Just to update around 45,000 miles. I've discovered that the D, W, and S imprints on the tire are tread wear indicators. The S will disappear first followed by the W and the D indicating at what point the tire won't perform as expected in those conditions. <br><br>So i'm updating at 45,000 miles to let people know my set of tires still has the D, W, and S visible. The S still has a little life left in it before it disappears completely. I am fully confident I can get through this winter with them without issue.
Initial Review: 43,500 miles on tires
October 16, 2012

Bought these tires based on reviews off tirerack, and have not been disappointed. Currently @ 43K miles of mostly highway driving on a set, and still about 40% treadlife left. I'm actually amazed at the (lack of) wear. I might get 60-65K miles out these by the time they should be changed. Performance in deeper, soft snow is excellent, but I'm sure the AWD system of my car helps a lot. I have no fear of driving when the white stuff flies.

Tire noise has increased towards the end of the life, but nothing close to unbearable. Ride is still smooth and soft. Rain performance has always been good, but AWD system probably helps here as well.

I would definitely by these tires again, especially if I make 60K miles before needing to replace them.
