After only a couple of years of horrible experience with dealer recommended/installed Goodyear Integrity, I had to replace them yet again. This time I discovered TireRack and chose these tires. I was initially biased with the name, commercials and high ratings, and had high hopes and bought them over snow tires last winter. Well, it has been a very good ride on the highways and city roads. But, it was obnoxiously noisy for many months. After about a year now, it sounds eerily quiet and feels like a luxurious ride (due to (0F) cold air? worn out treads? didn't check on that!). It is quite good on snowy roads as well. It slides but is very controllable. I am happy with them.
