October 09, 2012

I bought these tires literally the day I started a 4100 mile trip from California to Iowa and back for my Lincoln. I drove over asphalt and concrete roads in temps from the 40s in Colorado all the way up to 114 degrees in Kansas. I hit rain/sleet so hard you could barely see and these tires never hydroplaned or gave me any trouble, and that's a comfort in a two ton car. I'm glad I spent the extra cash for these instead of the other tires available. After 5000 miles they still are riding great, are quiet, and show no real wear that I can see or measure. Awesome tire.
