Follow-up review. After 26,000 miles, this tire still maintains excellent dry traction and very good wet traction. I do not use this vehicle in the snow, hence, I can not comment on winter driving characteristics. I am particular about maintaining proper air pressure and alignment. Noticing a higher degree of wear on the edges, more than expected. Having doubts that this is truly an 80K mile tire that Goodyear claims, but an exceptional tire so far. Will post again at 40K miles.
