I bought these tires for my daughters Eclipse. She is young, and drives far and hard. These tires experienced a few punctures along the way. The length of some of the objects that punctured the tires were not very long, telling me that the tread and carcass depth are not very thick. Wear was only acceptable. Noise levels were elevated compared to the Goodyear Eagles they replaced. We will be trying different tires this time - probably General Altimax HP's. The Sumitomo's were fairly inexpensive, though, and as a budget tire, they performed acceptably overall.
