Initial Review, 18,000 Miles on Tires
January 19, 2013

I drive mostly highway of 100 miles a day. The sonata came with loud kuhmos. These are a little more quiet. I do wish had a better temp rating then B. I recently drove from KY to TN in very heavy rain with water standing on the road in several spots. I had NO hydroplaning issues. There were several accidents that we passed on way home from people hydroplaning but even at highway speeds we had no problem. Tread ware seems to be great so far. I have not had a chance to drive in snow or ice. I did last week drive home in heavy winds, sleet and rain. Had no traction issues at all even though had been raining for 4 days straight with flooding.
