The best tire I have used in over 40 years of driving. The traction in the rain is simply the best. Traction on dry and snow covered roads is outstanding. Traction is friction, so these tires are not quiet, and gas milage will suffer. They are better than the OEM Firestone Destination LE that went out of round at 40K or Continental LT Sports that lasted half of the 80K they were rated for.
