I originally put these on my car after driving about 1000 miles on the OEM Goodyear RSA's. The ride change improvement was massive. I live in the Seattle area and drive some pretty rough freeways in lots of heavy rain. I've never felt these tires ever hydroplane, even with wear. They did get a little noisier as the tread wears down, but the noise level is still good. I did notice more wear on the outer edges once they passed about 40000 miles, but they should easily last me through the summer. I've rotated and balance the tires every 6000 miles. I will buy another pair of these.
