I haven't had these long, but from the tires that were on my car to now it's such a drastic, dramatic improvement. My other vehicle has top end tires that aren't this quiet nor this good on wet/dry traction. At 70 mph it's so quiet I can whisper to my wife and she can hear me. No kidding. It's still very early on to report on tread wear. I've pushed these hard in both rains and dry road on turns, braking, and both combined. They didn't fail. I know tires, and for the price and recognized performance to date, I haven't owned s better set yet. Highly, highly recommended!
