I purchased these tires for my 06 impreza 2.5i and have had them on for 10k miles now and I couldnt be happier with them. They are a comfy ride and traction is pretty good in all conditions. I rotate my tires properly every 4-5k miles and I check the tread every so often and they seem to be wearing at a normal rate. No issues at all. Its a solid tire all around folks. If your looking for a super grippy, stiff tire for street racing and auto x then keep looking. This tire is perfect for all-weather driving as well as some aggressive driving:) Dont listen to all the negative reviews. If you rotate your tires and keep them inflated properly then you will have no issues with these kooks!
