We've only had these tires for 2 months but so far they have met expectations. Dry traction is excellent and traction on light snow wasvery good on a small SUV. We have seen a very slight increase in fuel economy, but that may be due to unseasonably nice driving conditions. The tires are pretty responsive and feel fairly firm when cornering at higher speeds. The biggest drawback is that these are slightly noisier than our previous Yokohama tires that were factory installed. Overall they are excellent tires for the money.
