This is OEM tire on my 05 Civic. It's more sporty than I expected with quick response in mu daily drive. Never have any problem or hydroplaning on this set. This set has 50000 miles on them and they still have 5/32 left. I typically replace them at 3/32, soot may have another 8000 left. Some of the reviews here have too high an expection on it. It depends on driving styles and good rotation more than anything else. For OE tire, they are better than continental touring contact I have before. Will probably buy another set if on sale.
