I saw some bad reviews for this tire when I was researching it. I have to be honest that I got decent performance out of these tires. I probably should have retired tehm at 35000 miles but through 35K they were pretty good to me and as a price performer not bas at all. I though they gave a good ride with low noise and the tread wore evenly over the tires. I rotated them as recommended. So if you accept the price performance of 640 for 4 tires that give you 35K miles than I would not shy away from buying these tires. If you want more miles than you gotta spend more money....simple.
