I love this tire, they still feel as smooth as when I first got them. Yea there is some tread wear but there is way more then enough to compensate the way I drive. I push my car to the limit and these tires handle anything perfectly. The OEM tires had such a poor rating when I checked them out, I had to make a major change in tire choice.my tread life was gone in all four tires before i hit 12.000 miles. I knew there was a serious problem. I bought a complete set of the Altimax HP's and i couldn't be more satisfied. 20,000 miles strong and theres more to go. Thank's Tire Rack and General Tire, for providing great products.
