This tire came with my new car, i drive 80% highway 20% city at first 38,000 miles traction were reasonably good when raining no complain, but shortly there after its wet traction is getting worst and worst. I now live in southern states so i don't have snow to worry about, but if i were still live in Chicago,IL i would have replace these tires already. If they can't give me good traction when wet its definitely not going to make it through snows. I will try to stretch another 6,500 miles out of it and reach 50,000 miles before i will get another set of tires. Next set would probably be the Continental Cross Contact LX20 or the Goodyear Assurance CS Triple Tred depending on which set is on sale.
