This was one of the tires that was rated very highly by past reviewers. I use my vehicle for work that includes travel up and down the east coast, I prefer to use my own car rather than a lease/rental car. I have only 2000 miles on these tires so far and love them. They grip very well, and are quiet on the highway. I have been known to drive between jobs at high rates of speed, and the tires inspire confidence in doing so.
