I reviewed several tires when I purchased these for my Expedition. I have had experiece with Michelin, General, and Firestone as welll. These have been the best handling truck/SUV tire I have ever had. I have a 2WD Expedition and I have driven though rain, light snow and even snow over a foot and these tire perfom beautifully every time. There are a bit noisier than other tires, but this is an SUV and traction (at least for me) is more important that a little extra noise. When time comes for replacement I will be buying the same tire.
