Switched from the OEMs and it was like driving a brand new car. For my minivan I was looking for a very quiet and smooth ride with long tread life, and these definitely deliver that. They really soak up road cracks and rough patches, and road noise is very quiet. After 12,000 miles the treads still look like new. However I get a sense that fuel economy is a bit lower on these, but haven't verified that yet.
