One thing that I've found when reading tire reviews is to pay attention to the type of vehicle the reviewer is driving. I've seen tires get terrible reviews when installed on a passenger car, but get great reviews when installed on something like an SUV or minivan.
That being said, my experience with the Assurance Fuel Max (245/55-19) has been outstanding to date. Much quieter and smoother than the Bridgestone Dueler's that they replaced. No chance to drive in snow or ice, but with in the weather that I normally see here in Texas these tires have performed beautifully. If they continue with their existing performance I'll definitely buy another set of these when the time comes.
