I just rolled 50,000 miles on my Benz. The OEM tires got about 22K miles. I live in Phoneix where it rarely rains and is plenty warm most of the year. I would say I drive somewhere above average - but below spirited. The tires aren't the quietest, but not bad by any stretch. I don't require super sporty tires, just tires that last (these have almost 30K miles on them)and provide adequate responsiveness. Also, I'm religious about rotating them every 7-10K miles. For the price, you really can't beat these tires. They are getting close to the wear bars and I'll probably order another set.
