Good all around performance. Nice balance of handling, comfort and value for a 3 season tire. Ride comfort may not be quite soft as some all season alternatives. Our car isn't soft to start with, and the tires can be a little stiff on rough pavement, seams, etc. They don't -----up city bumps like a touring tire. But the trade-off is crisp steering response, no jiggle in loaded corners, and no howls, squeals or complaints in fast cornering, or quick transitions. Despite the all-season rating, I wouldn't recommend it for winter. Tried it briefly, and they do not compare to our dedicated snow tires in snow/ice driving here in Denver. Noise is far better than the Pirelli factory tires. Since install, I've never made mental note of noise being an issue at all. A good option if you don't need all-out Summer Tire price/performance, but would like to avoid soft touring tire pitfalls, and get better wear and improved handling.
