Above average tire for minivans. Wears very well for my nose-heavy fwd van, but I rotate every 6,000 miles and that has helped. Tire is starting to show its age after 40,000 and I don't feel confident using for winter driving anymore. Handling is very stable at speed, and predictable in corners. Handles bumps and potholes well. Comfortable ride, but it feels a bit 'heavy', which I guess is attributed to the solid tread pattern. I recommend this tire. I have been pleased with it, and 40K is about what I expected when I bought it so if I get another 5K before winter then I am satisfied.
