Follow-Up Review: 36,000 miles on tires
Very happy still after 30K + miles. Only disapointment is tread wear. This is an all wheel drive and I rotate often; but still not getting the tread wear i expected. Still very quite and comfortable ride with good grip as i approach the wear bars. I have noticed they have increased the price substantually from when i purchased 2 yrs ago (~30%). So will likey look at the General Grabber since it has similar ratings and is made in the US.
Initial Review: 2,200 miles on tires
Replaced Good Year Eagle LS with 67,000 miles on them. Only have put 2,200 on these so far but really nice tire for the price and made in USA. But have already driven in snow and rain with them and have a really nice grasp on the pavement. Little softer ride than the Eagle LS but that is exactly what i wanted to help cushion some of the ride that the 20's give up. Love the tread pattern very nice, not a lot of ratings out yet on these so i gambled a bit but glad i did! Better in the snow than i expected and much better than the Eagle LS ever was. Will report back once i have more miles logged.
