I now have 138,000 on my BMW and have gone through a few sets of tires. This car is picky on the kind of tires you put on it and these match up great. Most of the tires I have tried result in a lot of road noise and these are quiet and have stayed quiet. They take a little getting use to because the turning response is a bit slower...you get a little more roll from the side walls. For me, it was not enough to change my mind about the tire, because everything else is great. Too many tires handle really well but soon become incredibly loud. These do not, so it is a very good balance to get a quiet, very good handling tire.
