These tires had a better treadlife for being strictly a summer tire. I have had all season tires not last as long. However these tires are prone to cupping. The wet traction was sub par. I dont know how the manufacturer even can say that they evacuate water well. If it rains stay home! These tires will not be good for you nor comfortable even in the lightest rain. This website wont let me rate the tires on sand so I will do it here. I drove on the beach and they are very very good on sand. Believe it or not for sand driving you want a mostly bald tire. I only had 3000 miles on them at the time and they held up very well and even on dirt. Never got the chance to take it in the mud. But judging my the tread pattern I wouldnt want to have them on mud or rock. I may buy this tire again, but not at the price thats being asked for them. Especially when they are not even a runflat and have such poor wet traction. Going to try Michellin or Continental next.
