Replaced the OEM Michelin tire with these. The Michelin tires were good but after reading reviews of the General Tires decided to give them a try. The reviews lead on that the General was a better tire for the money. I was a bit skeptical as I've always used Michelin tires; however, after driving a few days with the Generals, I was not disappointed. The tires were very quiet, smooth and when pushed, they handled well. I only have 1000 miles on them so I'll have to write a follow up review regarding tread life and winter handling. So far I am very pleased with this tire and feel that they give my BMW X5 the performance the car deserves.
