These tires were used the majority of their life driving from the coast of Houston, Texas up to Northern Arkansas. 35,000 miles is the most miles I have ever gotten from a set of Tires and I have always bought Michelin's. My driving is often spirited but only when it can be. Most of Texas' highways are flat and straight, however once you get into the middle of Arkansas you hit the mountains and the highways start to wind and get fun! These tires held up to everything I gave them, however their dry traction and cornering stability is much better on hot dry pavements rather than wet pavements. I can remember a few times when these tires had less that 10,000 miles on them I slid a bit into a curve on a rainy day. This was more driver error than anything but I prefer a tire that can take anything I give it, even trying to make a 90 degree turn at 65mph when it's raining.
