Initial Review, 47,000 Miles on Tires
July 10, 2014

Ok, I have installed these tires on a previous auto (98 Pontiac GTP) and really enjoyed the quality of the tires. I install these on my 2010 Focus SES thinking I would get the same quality and I was sadly mistake. Now, the snow and rain traction is unbelievable, but the tire wear and noise is horrible. I think the wait of the GTP is the big difference, so I don't recommend these tires for small cars, under 3,000lbs. I got 60,000 miles on the GTP, but the Focus became really noise around 30,000 miles. I have driven these tires in heavy rain, heavy snow, dry roads and rough roads, they get high marks for everything except tread wear and noise.
