just got these not to long ago so i cant tell how long they last. but very quiet, smooth deep treads, nice traction when dry. we just had a snow storm in new jersey last week. i was happy with the way they handle. even in rain i have no complaints. i had the good year tire that came with the car wich were garbage, then i got michelen tires and they dry rotted craked and tread life was 50/50. those brands never agian.
firestone makes nice tires, great price. i didnt have to much to choose in the size because i am very picky about tires. I wanted a more beefy tire but with out noise or compermising the gas miles. so this tire fit in perfect.
So my final say, YES! if you have a SUV these are good! i will coment later as far mile life cause like i said i only have 4,000miles on them but the tread still looks good so far. care full when reading the reviews, cause lets say if you dont have a SUV and you want them on a sedan, then the might handle diferent as compared to an SUV. hope my info helps you!
