Bought these tires and am extremely pleased with the responsiveness. I was thinking my car need suspension work but once these tires were installed, I felt as if I had a brand new car. My ride was oh so comfortable. We had an interesting winter in NC, so I have gotten to try out these tires in the rain, snow and a few ice storms. Now granted my Subaru is excellent with it's all wheel drive, but in the last ice storm, I was driving with no problem and passed up the snow plow AND the police car!, I only have 5k on them and hoping they last as long as stated but so far they are Excellent. Am so happy I went with the Purecontact.
