I purchased these tires in the hope of getting something longer wearing but still having good traction. I am not dissapointed. This is the first set of tires on this car that look like they will last more than 35,000 miles. The wet, dry, and snow traction are better than any of the other tires I have had on this car. So far the tires have been quiet also (bonus). I would buy these again and like them enough that I plan to buy another set to replace the tires on my other car.
