Picked this tire to replace the OE Michelin tires which had started to culp at 30,000 miles .. dealer and independent shop both said nothing they could do ... I had rotated at 5,000 miles faithfully. This tire is quieter, rides better and is excellent in the rain. This is my wife's car and I keep it in tip-top condition. Ready to put the same tire on my 2006 RSX-Type S!
