This is the OE tire for my car. The tires have 55K miles at the moment, with 70% of that being hwy miles. My guesstimate is they have another 8K - 10K remaining. I rotate every 10K - 12K miles and tread wear has remained consistent and even. I've never had *any* hydroplaning issues and that is a frequent threat on a highway I frequently travel. Hopefully no police are reading this - I once hit 140 mph on I-55, and the tires felt very stable and secure. The only complaint I have is they seem to transmit a lot of road noise on a concrete road (no prb on asphalt), and it's growing worse as the tires wear. On the other hand the price on these is quite reasonable so when the time comes (soon), I'll consider another set.
