These are BY FAR the best tires I have ever owned. I've driven them 90,000 miles, rotating every 6000 miles and only now can I tell a difference. Have to admit, I didn't do much research before the purchase and just went with the Sears recommendation and boy am I glad I did! Certainly more expensive than other cheaper tires but totally worth the investment. Exceeded my expectations in every way from handling (you'll feel like you're driving a new car), to tread life (what set of tires gets that kind of mileage) and reliablity. Make the investment, you'll be glad you did... knowing they'll save you a bunch of headaches and need to replace them anytime soon!
