Initial Review, 5,000 Miles on Tires
January 26, 2013

Finest tire for my minivan I could have chosen. Previous (OEM) tire was quiet and lasted a commendably long time. But it had no other redeeming value. Immediately I noticed how this tire seemed planted to the pavement - it WANTED to be steered and driven hard. And yet, especially considering I just put what is basically truck-pedigree tires on my minivan, you have never had a smoother or quieter-riding tire.

Have already been through 2" rain, 5" snow and whatever else Mother Nature can throw at it. I may be fortunate in that my particular size is (curiously) 'H'-rated, which I'm sure helps handling. And fuel economy has actually nosed up a tad with these tires, a VERY impressive development.

I cannot yet comment on how long these tires will last, but if these tires last the way they perform, one may have just found a "BEST BUY" here. I certainly and already feel that way.
