In the past I have run Goodyear, BF Goodrich and Michelin Tires on my SUVs. This tire is far superior to the others with respect to wet traction and hydroplaning in standing water, which living in Florida during the rainy season one encounters on sometimes a daily basis. I got approximately 42000 miles off my last set, never rotated them because they all wore perfectly, and they probably had another 5000 miles left on them when I replaced them. This is a reasonably priced tire, and I am very satisfied with its looks and performance. I would definitely buy them again.
