I purchased these after reading all the positive reviews. A big difference from the original tires from Toyota. I went back to the dealership and told them if they would put these tires on their 4runners , they would sell more cars. The handling and noise level (none) was a definite upgrade. I have not been disappointed. My usage is both off road and highway; since I live on a dirt/ non paved road. The tires are now almost 70,000 miles and still have another 10K miles left as per the tire shop. I don't understand some of the reviews that state they are only getting 30K miles out of the same tires. I am looking at buying another set of Michelins. You get what you pay for.
