I purchased these tires because the reviews on the most of the other options were poor. The tires have so far been a very good. The ride is soft and comfortable with very little noise. The wear rate has been good so far. The dealer just rotated them and reported no problems other then some very minor side wall issues. I think he was more interested in pointing something wrong out since I didn't get the tires from that dealer.
These tires are great in the rain. No sliding or hydroplaning at all. We had an ice storm recently and the tires didn't do that great but the road was almost all ice. If there is any place I am disappointed it's in their performance in the snow. They are adequate but could be better. They lack the traction I've had with other SUV tires. They weren't bad, just ok. Overall, so far, these tires have performed very well for the price.
