Gone another winter with these tires on my wife's Highlander. Still very pleased with traction in snow and slush. I went out and bought 4 for my Lexus ES350 after sliding off the road with the Bridgestone all-season OEM's and even love them on my car. Yes, they have a bouncier ride than the all-seasons, but not noisy and keep you safe on the road. Wear after another 5k miles on the Highlander showing just a little, but very little. Think we will get another 3 years with these is my guess.

This is an update to my last review at 5,000 miles. While we had a historically mild winter in upstate NY this past year, the tires were on our highlander and mostly driving on DRY pavement. i expected after 5,000 miles more of driving (especially on dry roads) that they would show significant wear since they are a very soft tire....didn't happen. The treads are still in Great shape, which is amazing because my wife drives very spirited and cuts her corners very sharp. Hoping to get possibly 2 more winters with these tires (20,000 miles). Still love them. Will update again after this next winter, because i can guaranty we won't get lucky enough to have another dry winter in 2013!
