I've had these tires on my '09 Accord V6 for a couple of years now. They are very smooth on the highway, and I have not felt any hydroplaning with these tires in the rain; light or heavy. Gone through a couple of snowy midwest winters, and they are very good in the snow, especially deep snow. The responsiveness of the car improved substantially when I switched from OEM Michelins to these tires. I like them so much I plan on buying a set for my wife's car soon.
