Great tire so far,very quiet,all I hear is my exhaust. Handling and grip is excellent. Driving in serious heavy rain and no worries. So far this tire has exceeded my expectations, for the money I think it's a great value. So much difference from the OEM Goodyear RSA (which are the crappiest tires ever made). I feel much more confident in my car's handling with these tires and so much more comfortable. As long as the treadwear is good I will definitely buy another set. Thanks to all the other reviews on this tire that helped me decide on buying them.
