I had this on for 15,000 miles so far. It has been one of the best tires I have on my car. Dry traction is awesome and not a problem with daily driving. Wet traction is pretty good too. I tried accelerating from a full stop and didn't even lose traction on during average rain. It could've done a little bit better on ice traction and I still tend to slide a little bit left to right going about 20-30 mph on pure ice roads. But snow traction is pretty good too. Love how it can make it up hills during 6 inches of snow without falling back once even from dead stop. I can't really say about the life of tires because only drove about 15,000 miles. But from what I can tell that it is an average wear for highway and daily use.
