Bought a set of these tires before our road trip from NJ to FL. So far I am quite satisfied. The price was right (even beat Sam's club), and installation at my local garage went well. One tire needed an excess amount of weights for balancing and when I told Tire Rack they immediately sent a new one and picked up the other. My only tire comparison is the OEM Bridgestones that came with the vehicle. With the Eagles I feel more of the road and any imperfections of the road. Traction is great and they perform very well in the wet. Road noise is slightly more pronounced especially at higher speeds. As a side note they look great on the car too and shine up beautifully with some armor all.
