I do not normaly post reviews however I was so grateful for Tire Rack and their reviews because it was hard to select a tire for my Flex. I did a lot of research before selecting this tire to replace the original Hankook tires. After reading other stories about Hankook tires failing early (20,000 miles) I felt fortunate to have put 37,500 miles on the original tires. However they have never been very good particularly in the rain and snow. After just one week with the Pirelli tires it is like night and day. We only hae a couple hundred miles on the new tires but the difference was immediately noticable. The car drives better, quieter ride, more responsive steering and better sidewall protection for the rim. I wanted to post this as it was difficult trying to select an all season tire with a good rating in this somewhat unique size. I will post an update once we have a chance to drive in the rain but based on the other reviews I expect everything will be fine. If you have a Flex and you are looking for a tire to replace the Hankook I strongly suggest you consider this tire.
