Moms & Dads - Buy this tire for your vehicle. I drive a lot ... over 600 miles each week ... my Subaru Outback LTD Wagon is the commuter ... back & forth Boston to NYC every week (sometimes twice!) plus trips throughout mid-Atlantic states, PA, NJ, NY, VA and all New England states. Different loads, smooth roads, rough roads, very rough roads - these tires are GREAT and can take it all - no problems whatsoever. Ever changing weather - cold, colder, snow, ice, rain, deluge, mist, dry, hot - doesn't matter. Even the occasional monstrous pot hole does not affect them. These tires are extremely safe, a great value and really deliver a quiet confident ride. I promise, you will not regret purchasing these tires. Quiet ride, good range and I feel these tires will provide an additional margin of safety for your children. These are Great Tires!
