Follow-Up Review: 52,000 miles on tires
I replaced these tires at 52K. They had some wear left, but I chose to replace for safety reasons. They performed very well and really did all that was asked. They held up for 7 years and still looked good and handled well.<br><br> I just want to re-iterate that buyers SHOULD NOT POST RESULTS UNLESS THEY HAVE some REAL MILES (minimally 4-5K) and EXPERIENCE (differing conditions/seasons) on them! I am sick of finding nice reviews at 500 miles, and then later I read negative reviews!<br><br>Every tire I read a review on seems to have tire noise issues for some people, I believe that some tires just are going to be noisy on certain roads with certain cars. I find my cars will have noise issues on various surfaces, mostly new ones, but it seems somewhat random. I think it is more dependent on the tire, speed, wear level, and the road surface...that is not a reason to give a tire a bad rating. Handling (I.E. SAFETY!!!) is most important, and unless they are ALWAYS NOISY, this is going to happen to ANY TIRE, depending on certain factors!
Initial Review: 22,000 miles on tires
These tires now have about 22k (4 years old) and still look new with minimal tread wear. They handle well and are silent!
Note: Please don't rate tires until you have some miles on them. I hate to see reviews with 25, 50 or 500 miles; they are meaningless! You have to have some time and many miles on them to rate them properly.
