January 07, 2013
The actual total milege was 118,000 for two sets. This form will not take mileages over 100,000. The first set lasted around 60,000 miles.<br><br>The first set of these tires gave excellent service and mileage. The second set disappointed. <br><br>After 35,000 miles the tires began to make a vibrating noise. It was most noticeable on smooth asphalt. I could hear the noise from the rear tires while sitting in the rear seats. The tires did not show any uneven wear. By 42,000 miles the noise became very annoying. <br><br>Despite the fact that there were probably at least 10,000 more miles left on the tread I replaced them with Michelin MXV4s. The new tires felt so much better just driving through the garage parking lot and they were so quiet on the highway that I found myself driving faster than usual.
