I recently came back from a deployment and I needed new tires badly. The old ones were on the verge of dry rot. I needed a good tire due to living in Southern Georgia you have to be able to run on some highways and some city areas like the ATL, Savannah, and Augusta. Also it rains a great deal so exceptional tires are needed in GA. I have had them for less than a month now and I am very pleased with them. I went to visit my sister for Christmas and I had to drive through a pretty heavy rain storm for at least 2 hours of the 4 hour plus drive on HWY 16. These tires hug the road great. During that ride I was going b/t 75 to 80 MPH on the highway and had total control of the wet HWY. They cut through wet roads;) Huge difference from my old tires. My car is an AWD so with these tires you can definitely feel the control of the road. I am very happy with these tires.
