The tires are great for traction in snow and ice. The problem is the wear is unacceptable. The tires were warrantied for 70,000 (now lowered to 60,000) and they wear out between 30,000 and 36,000. I have gone through two sets at very fast rates, getting rebates from Goodyear on the first set to the second set. I may change brands to get more than 30,000 out of the tires as I do not drive agressively, but they all seem to wear out very rapidly.
