I've had these tires on my car now for about 2 months and they were replacements for the original equipped Bridgestone Potenza. I went back and forth with replacing my tires with the Potenza, the Continental DW or Hankook Ventus and I can honestly say I am extremely pleased with my selection. It ultimately came down to the reviews that were posted by others who had purchased these tires. I live in Florida and the handling of the tires in both wet and dry conditions was extremely important to me. These tires continue to amaze me every time I get into my car and quietness of the ride was an added bonus.
